Shonagh Adelman “Beastiful”

Adelman is one of two artists chosen from the Art from the Boros Competition that exhibited 50 artists from over 500 plus initial submissions. Her crystal covered canvases stood out among the rest as a unique and inventive medium conveying quirky contemporary vignettes.

Beastiful’s combination of iconic images of Versailles and animal human hybrids depicted on crystalized canvases make for a campy genre of traditional turned none traditional painting. Her nod to Rococo and portraiture is executed just right. Attractive feminine figures, posed in front of decadent gold and ornate backgrounds are dressed in huge stuffed animal heads seen as both beautiful and beastly.

Shonagh’s process is laborious and intricate; each canvas is fixed with thousands of 4mm colored glass beads. Everything about these pieces are in excess, from the ornate architecture of Versailles to the literal crystals creating the shapes and colors of the image.

Sui Park “Contour Sculptures”

Park’s deftly crafted 3D organic contour sculptures are made from repurposed inorganic materials. Using plastic zip ties and mono filaments, Park creates intricate refined contours and shapes.

Her inspiration stems from the idea of creating abstract representation of objects and nature that we see every day. Her work can be described as living and breathing as it assimilates into its surroundings, evoking a mystical and illusionary feeling. Her provocative biomorphic natural forms are often singular and others are organized into environments and landscapes.

Mark Strodl “Wall Street and New York State of Mind”

Strodl’s images capture the modern day struggles of men and women in New York. With his mysterious play on a variety of social situations he reveals issues that many New Yorkers deal with on a daily basis; the endless rat race of wealth and poverty. Wall Street is fodder for Strodl’s ammo, depicting his interaction and commentary on the status quo. He touches on compelling taboos that very few artists seek to tackle.

Strodl spends his time wandering the greater streets of New York City finding interesting images to capture. He then distorts and manipulates his images in order to create the effect and story he is looking for. What is unique to his work is the contrast between fantasy and reality he presents. By implementing his computer skills as his paintbrush, he contorts his realistic backgrounds of popular well-known areas of New York. He adds his own eerie whimsical and quirky characters creating his unique social commentary.
