Luke Painter

There’s a lonely and terrifying echo felt but not heard in Luke Painter’s stark dreamscapes. Rendered in woodblock etching textures and muted antique lithography colors, his images are often populated by architectural structures ripped out of time. Their telltale ornamentation and historical context give us a glimpse into the many fixations that inform Luke Painter’s work. Read More...

Sam D’Orazio

Sophie Alda

UK-based painter Sophie Alda populates her images with the dreams and experiences of her physically and emotionally imperfect lumpy characters. Starting with a kaleidoscope of stories rooted in the mundane, her images evolve and take on spiritual dimensions, examining the connection between our everyday hopes and fears to the myths we create.
