  • Claudia Meyer  (+)

    Biography : Claudia Meyer is a Swiss-born, mixed-media artist living in Paris, France.

  • John Randall Nelson

    Biography : John Randall Nelson is a Phoenix-based painter and sculptor.

He has work in the permanent collections of Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ, Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe AZ among other prominent public and private collections.

  • Carlos Ramirez

    Biography : Carlos Ramirez was born in Cuba and currently resides in Santa Fe, NM. Ramirez has been painting for over 30 years. “My work is a visual record of the world around me; capturing those moments that have become rooted in my memory. I tend to work large, starting with bold black ink sketches that reference organic shapes. I then obscure parts with multiple layers of broken color. I work back and forth in this manner developing a thick build up of paint in some areas while others remain thin and open. The essence of my work is exploring the beauty that is present in the natural world. In this process I take in what draws me to nature and bring it back to the canvas via my own voice”.

  • Hunt Rettig

    Biography : Hunt Rettig is a mixed-media artist based in Aspen, Colorado. His three-dimensional wall sculptures often consist of polyester film, thermoplastic rubber and acrylics that he molds to create organic shapes full of light and dimension placed under frosted plexiglass to instill a soft glow. “Within my terrain I see cross sections of cross sections, unnatural confluences, un-navigable borders, unrestricted constriction and breath-like expansion. Especially with plantlike forms I see what I can best describe as the invisibly visible…landscapes unnatural yet natural at the same time.”

  • Mark Vinci

    Biography : Mark Vinci is a Phoenix-based mixed media artist and a recipient of the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. He studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York for a few years before achieving his BFA from Kutztown University in Kutztown, PA.
