Painted Pictures

acrylic on leather
18" x 30"
2024
$6,200

This piece of work was inspired by the dynamic and evolving nature of contemporary art, as well as a desire to merge traditional painting with fashion. By using acrylic paint on a leather jacket, I aimed to create wearable art that challenges the boundaries between fine art and everyday objects. The choice of medium reflects a commitment to innovation and the style embodies the bold, expressive characteristic of contemporary art.

Too Happy

acrylic, glitter, resin, clay, beveled sun
24.5" x 24"
2024
$555

"Too Happy" spotlights society’s linear thinking surrounding fatality, and seeks to raise awareness and emotional understanding of feelings one can experience when faced with their own immortality. "Too Happy" brings alive a cartoon, glitter-filled, and eerily picturesque during those last moments before the character’s death. This piece is inspired by a popular television show, which typically combats social stigmas using satire, parodies, and double meanings.

Turning Inside Out

2023
$1,500

I created towers of botanical timelines as they transition from one season to another, exploring the natural order of one’s life cycle, and the dynamics of power, ritual, and succession. This piece was created during a time of great uncertainty as I dealt with caring for my aging parents while I was in a temporary living situation as I waited for my new home and studio to be available (it was 5 months later than expected). I learned the hard way that the only constant is change.

Dragon Teapot Set

$500

This is a set I made for a ceramics class at FSU. The whole set represents my family. The teapot represents my mother with a ferocious yet majestic dragon. The plate represents my father as a tranquil pond that can be disrupted at times. Each cup has a Kanji symbol for "Peace," "Love," and "Prosperity." The cups can be interchangeable between my sister, brother, and myself. The teapot can be on top of the plate, the cups can be on the plate, the teapot can be on top of the cups on the plate, and the set can be separated.

This painting is a reminder to find strength and courage within ourselves. We can have a notion of just what kind of person we would like to be in times of grief or struggle. When the physical body is broken, the mental and the emotional state of health can be broken. This painting symbolizes the process of repair.

Evan with Dishes

2024
$8,700

"Evan with Dishes" is part of an ongoing series of painted ceramic and plaster sculptures that combine multiple sculptural elements into piles, representing evidence of daily habits and personal identity. I hand-build my sculptures in clay, working from photographs, still-life, or live models. This portrait bust utilizes relief-sculpture in the style of Roman or Renaissance busts, with contemporary imagery sculpted on the clothing like decorative accents. In making these piles, I want the sculptural qualities of a portrait to be considered in relation to an industrial item of human-making.

In her paintings, Clare Asch explores the interaction of chance and predetermined structures. Natural phenomena like gravity and its effect on the flow of water fascinate her. She also has a long-standing interest in markmaking. This dialogue of chance, gesture and structure is the foundational basis of her art.

My Sacred Heart Trans-formed

acrylic on canvas

2024
$900

"My Sacred Heart Trans-Formed" is a contemplation of my journey as a trans-man and as a person with an extensive heart disease history. The image was inspired by the sacred heart statue that was in my grandmother’s house when I was a child. The sacred heart represents being open-hearted to the world and giving loving-kindness to others. Loving-kindness practices usually begin with yourself and then radiate to other beings. Loving-kindness is one of the most important spiritual journeys in which someone can endeavor.

Descartes' Mechanical Daughter

clay and oil paint
10" x 7" x 5"
2024
$800
 

In 1650, an octopus lives under a robotic fragment of René Descartes’ deceased daughter. The myth goes that Descartes so missed his daughter that he built a mechanical likeness. On a voyage, fearing witchcraft, sailors threw it into the water.

In 2021, the United Kingdom declared the octopus sentient: that through their complex nervous systems, they feel “pain, pleasure, joy, and excitement.”

René Descartes was central in creating our still-held Mechanistic World View, that life is no more than a network of dead parts, operating without sentience. If something is perceived as dead, there is no prohibition against destroying it.

aii 18, art in isolation, family debris

monoprint with mixed media: printed collage and thread on BFK Rives paper with grommets
22" x 22”
2021
$1,000
 

As I made art during the Covid 19 stay at home order and the restrictive period that followed, I focused on using family debris monoprint remnants to create small comforting handheld work. As the pandemic continued, my work grew, increasing in size and breaking out of the confines of the square form, a creative metaphor? "aii 18, art in isolation, family debris" is part of the transition to larger sized, irregularly shaped abstract 2d and 3d mixed media pieces. Creating during the pandemic moved my heart, eye, and hand forward, ever-appreciative of the liberation and hope art making embodies.

Floating Pond

acrylic, pencil on paper

Not For Sale
 

Anne Beinecke’s billowing pulses of color and energetic markmaking flow from an automatic process and are developed through a marriage of spontaneity, deliberation, and imagination. Her forms emerge and float together on a page as if in communion. There, they inhabit an unrestricted world that often straddles the abstract and representational.

Driving Beinecke’s work is her fervent passion for nature which streams through in a rainbow of colors. Immersed in the natural world, the boundaries between inside and out blur, all life forms feel interconnected - and from these magical experiences, paint pours out onto paper.

mixed media art waste (acrylic, linocut scraps, paint tubes, sandpaper, nitrile gloves, paper towels) on canvas
20" x 24"
2023-2024
$675
 

In my series 'Trash Paintings,' I only use waste materials—both leftovers from other projects and media that are old or otherwise unusable. Creating with waste emboldens me to explore textures and compositions I'm scared will be ugly. What's the worst that could happen? It's already trash.
"Trash Painting #13" integrates discarded and unwanted materials from friends, family, and community members: gunky paint, abandoned embroidery projects, half-dried glue. It inspired my upcoming series 'Community Trash.'

Growing up next to Worcester's largest park, which used to feature bison, meant climbing trees, building treehouses, stealing golf balls, exploring caves, sledding, skating, skiing, setting and dousing fires there- generally running wild. It was a world apart within the city for every neighborhood kid. The memories? Magic.

Under the Bridge

digital photography
8" x 10"
2024
$200

The convenience of photography (as opposed to the painfully slow process of painting realism) is that it not only captures an image in split second real time, but also candidly, thereby resulting in a more intimate, truer image. These are some of the many reasons why I find the medium irresistible. The photograph titled "Under the Bridge" is an example of a candid subject in real time unaware of being photographed gives one a voyeur-like point of view.

Reaching Out

"A Place of Refuge" explores the relationship, via a photographic essay, between humans and plants and trees.

Images were made during a year-long project in an indoors room, a place of refuge, and for some photos, through the windows, towards the outdoors.
As time went by, the observer realized that plants and trees exhibited human-like qualities, primarily the need for connection and being part of a society. In this society, individuals took care of each other and ensured the well being and survival of their species.

Nature embodies the example to follow for a harmonious life.

As I grow older, I am in awe of how things change in a matter of moments. Life indeed is very short. This work is inviting the viewer to embrace that there is no time to waste. Don't wait for a special event to wear a vintage fur, fancy necklace, fabulous shoes or a fun tie. Wear these things to the grocery store, the dump, in the garden, at work, or even when you are cleaning the house.
Life waits for no one.

Always Wash Your Hands Before Cooking

acrylic, collage, and marker on wood panel
24" x 18" x 0.75"
2023
$1,950

This painting incorporates collaged illustrations of characters liberated from a book of misogynistic, classic fairy tales normalizing child abuse. I became a father in early 2020, and re-engaging with the media of childhood and experiencing parenthood have made me think deeply about my own childhood and the experiences that have contributed to who I am today. This is a bit of an abstract mind-scape, a layered whirlwind of color, pattern, and collage. Nothing is very clear or obvious, but it seems to hold itself together, and we hope everything will work out alright.

In a modern setting, the Greek God of love, Eros (Cupid for you Romans), fires his golden arrow, causing a male to fall in love.

Love is Holy

plexiglass and resin
18'' x 24''
2024
$1,500
 

I appropriated the Christian tradition of stained glass and superimposed gay women living together. I began by drawing the image with a Sharpie to create bold shapes that were scanned into Adobe Illustrator. The shapes were then cut into plexiglass using a laser printer, and I individually secured each piece to a sheet of plexiglass by applying resin with a toothpick. I draw from my own experiences as a queer woman raised in a Southern Christian household to create self-portraits that explore the body as a form of communication. With this, I wanted to re-contextualize queerness as holy.

This past year, a Eurasian eagle-owl named Flaco made headlines and captured the hearts of people in New York City and around the world. Flaco escaped from the Central Park Zoo and lived successfully for about a year in the wilds of the city. Unfortunately, Flaco passed away in February of 2024. This piece is dedicated to the lively owl whose colorful personality brought joy to our lives. Created with watercolor markers and felt-tipped pen, I wanted to show Flaco in an array of colors to express how he made people feel - joyful and full of hope.

Modern Ammonite (Hecticoceras lunuloceras var. Anthropocene)

Handcrafted from collected scrap wood, reclaimed firewood, and epoxy-resin mixed with blue dye, my goal was to give new life to discarded scraps.

When a fossil forms, hard material such as bones, teeth, or shells is mineralized while all other material decays and is lost. As such, fossils record the physical bounds of extinct life. Ammonites-consisting of the Ammonoidea subclass-lived from the Devonion until the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event, a span of approximately 300 million years. By comparison, our evolutionary ancestors go back only an approximate 6 million years. What fossils will we create?

Measure Twice...

2024
$750

"Measure Twice..." is a collection of antique folding rulers set in a handcrafted display frame adorned with yard sticks, a bandsaw blade, and copper gilded with the phrase "Measure Twice Cut Once." This phrase is used in carpentry to mean that one should double-check one's measurements for accuracy before cutting a piece of wood, otherwise it may be necessary to cut again, wasting time and material. I use this phrase to remind me to be mindful and present while making things and to enjoy the process. The distressed aesthetic reminds me that this old phrase has stood the test of time.

Online Dating

Not For Sale

Karin's art revolves around the concept of the "other," internal and external. Delving into the complexities of the self, she attempts to unravel the threads of identity, exposing the complexities with the internal other- fragments of emotion and unexplored thoughts that shape individuality.

Simultaneously, her work extends beyond introspection to explore the external other—the diverse tapestry of humanity and our relationship to each other. This interplay between self-discovery and communal understanding explores boundaries, fostering unity, empathy and forgiveness of ourselves and others.

Karin is a self taught artist with a B.S. in Computer Science and a M.Ed in Curriculum.

Whenever I paint or draw, the voice of my childhood art teacher is always in my head, repeating “draw what you see, not what you think you see.” I have always tried to look hard for the tiny shapes of color or the changes in value that allow our brains to perceive the world. Lately I have been most interested in water, sky, and reflection. I think this painting is particularly successful.

Whether at the water’s edge, a mountain summit, farmland meadow, or city center, sunsets will often stop me in my tracks. On my first trip to Europe, while staying in Paris, I opened the window where I was staying, to see what was happening on the street below. The setting sun boomeranged across the rooftops, inspiring me when I got home to draw it in pen and ink. More than 40 years later, I translated that drawing into a mosaic to capture the light and magic of that great moment.

My artworks, whether it is watercolor, printmaking, oils or acrylics, are inspired by places I have visited and interacted with. My acrylic painting 'Broken Tree Peninsula' is based on a photo I took while kayaking. While seeking shade, I came across this little broken tree in the cove. I was impressed by the resilience and strength it showed after losing the larger more dominate trunk.
With the use of acrylics and an upcycled canvas with already beautiful underlying textures and colors, I hope to show that feeling of strength to the viewer by presenting the subject as a dominating force.

Social media, job opportunities, and work competition are all contributing, particularly social media such as Tinder, Hinge, and Match, in straining male/female relationships and consequently, the state institution of marriage.

"Slow Down" is an acrylic painting on paper that shows my practice of finding joy and celebration in the moment.

Through this painting, I aim to celebrate the beauty in life's small, often overlooked details, encouraging a mindful appreciation of each moment and a deeper connection to our everyday experiences.

Eddy #1

oil pastel
24" x 30"
2024
$680

Heather Finlay-Morreale is a paper artist and physician, who developed a disabling neurological condition. In a depressed period, she was saved by the library book The Art of Papercraft by Helen Hiebert.
This series was made in a dark time. I felt sucked down into an eddy (synonym: whirlpool) rimmed by barbed wire. It is made using gloomy colors of the natural world, with repetition showing the mundaneness of a bed-bound existence, and created in a childlike way with oil pastels and messy fingers, where the process of art-making and its effects on the artist is what matters, not the outcome.

My name is Dan Foran. I am an artist. My mediums I use to create my artwork are painting and drawing, specifically acrylic paintings on canvas. I start my paintings with a drawing outline. Then I paint over the drawings that I create with acrylic paint. Art is my therapy. I love how I am able to express an emotion through drawing and painting without having to speak. I am a pointillist/animation painter. Themes in my paintings over the past 8 years have been themes about human rights, animal rights, and environmental rights.

This artwork is part of a series of paintings based on sunsets that inspired me in unconventional and random places.

I am particularly interested in studying the juxtaposition of urban features framing the natural patterns in the sky, as well as the contrast created by light and it's color.

Anabel Hadad is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Leominster, MA. Hadad received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. The figures in her work exist among their lingering perceptions, taking on anthropomorphic forms. Hadad’s work is focused on the perceptions that follow individuals, particularly the perceptions associated with people’s bodies and the spaces that bodies take up. Hadad uses non-specific figures to avoid identification, reducing the figures down to what is necessary to be interpreted, finding safety in anonymity, and being able to escape the feminine form.

I am an observational painter, I enjoy the dynamic interplay of painting from life. I'm not interested in a photographic reproduction, but a creative dialogue. Colors can be changes, objects moved, to create a more expressive composition. I start each painting on location and I try to approach each one with a fresh and open point of view. Most of each painting is finished on the spot, but they are frequently reworked and adjusted in my studio. I try to make my paintings more than just a copy of a place but a personal and emotional narrative.

It is a lifelong naughty experience we have found to be so exciting, forbidden and memorable.

As a Vermonter, I'm drawn to capturing the ephemeral beauty of my local surroundings. This detailed snowflake image required specialized technique - using a tripod, macro lens, and precise lighting to freeze the crystalline form before it melted.

Rather than a scientific rendition, I aimed to elevate the humble snowflake through an atmospheric, moody composition caught delicately on wool fibers.

My artistic vision brings viewers an intimate perspective on nature's incredible micro-designs that often go unseen to the naked eye. Each crystalline pattern offers a fresh experience to visually explore and appreciate nature's astounding complexity.

Grief is universal. It touches us when we lose loved ones, when relationships come to an end, and even when we see the living suffer.

I am intrigued by what lies beyond the seemingly apparent, particularly the emotional undercurrents and lingering memories that operate beneath the surface of our lives.

My multi-layer constructions, with varying levels of opacity, feature figures and motifs that are visible only through a foggy lens, where viewers can peer into the deepest recesses.

Intentionally enigmatic, my symbology is one where, just as in dreams, laws of logic are broken in the name of emotional impact, and the stories that unfold are ripe with mystery and metaphor.

An entry in my diary on August 24, 2014—"Plastic in the air and everywhere! The water, the bellies of sea creatures & birds."
Using deformed plastic produce containers, I have created small sculptural objects. The intent of these sculptural assemblages is to highlight the environmental impact of plastic pollution by transforming them into objects that we might want to save and that give a sense of beauty, while still reminding us of their origins. This most recent work is intended as yet another reminder of the pervasiveness of discarded plastic detritus that is filling the oceans.

"Pink Dreams, Dark Realities" explores the juxtaposition between the softness we deserved and the harshness we often endured. The painting, with its various shades of pink and white textures, symbolizes innocence and the longing for safety and gentleness. The holographic letters, stating "I deserved softness, I deserved safety," highlight the unmet desires and unfulfilled promises. This artwork is a stark reminder of the painful contrast between our dreams of kindness and the dark realities of trauma and hardship that replaced them. It is a visual narrative of lost innocence and the resilience that arises from facing our darkest experiences.

In 2020, Armenians fearing oppression, left the historic homeland for centuries. Rather than leave leave their homes ,they burned them or left with minimal possessions.
Armenians view this as a continuous persecution from the Turkish government, the first modern genocide. The Turkish government has never recognized the genocide. In 1915, my Uncle Krikor escaped from being executed by Turkish soldiers to eventually begin a new life in Whitensville,MA. His name is written on the house in the painting to show homage to my ancestors. All were survivors of that genocide.

My painting reflects on my own inner struggles of being a woman. From being diagnosed with endometriosis, to mistreatment and assault. There is a lot of pain that I have endured. To me, the uterus represents fortitude. Women, as a collective, face societal pressures, physical pain from menstruation and childbirth, and as in my case, a misunderstood and often misdiagnosed disease. I wanted to convey womanhood and personal identity through this piece. The glowing monochromatic red in the uterus holds strength. Contrasted with the monochromatic blue in the self-portrait represents a sense of isolation yet calmness.

Embracing what is, we might find a strength, a solace, and perhaps create ourselves a sanctuary for growth.

Carving stone is a challenging and oftentimes frustrating process, but when it comes out right, it is one of the most rewarding materials to work with. When I work with stone, I spend time with the raw stone, studying the color, form, and size, and sometimes laminating multiple small pieces together before I begin to develop an idea for the final sculpture. Often, I start with a basic idea that is developed as I get deeper into the carving. This allows for flexibility and surprises along the way. ​

Her bold, flat, and colorful style often departs significantly from reality, blending graphic elements with minimalist tendencies to evoke a lingering human presence.

This artwork emerged during my residency, an immersive journey where intuition guided my creative process. Beginning with charcoal gestures, I embarked without a predetermined path, allowing each stroke to flow organically. Layer by layer, I explored the interplay of paint, making instinctive decisions on their harmonies and contrasts. In this piece, lines and shades converge to initiate a dialogue among figures, each stroke a quiet exchange between forms. Through the fluidity of gesture, I sought to capture the essence of human movement and emotion, inviting viewers into a realm where stories unfold with every curve and contour.

I am primarily a plein air painter, but I began making collages during the winter months to relive the beauty and memory of my summer garden. I create “painted collages" by layering transparencies from vintage gardening encyclopedias, linocut prints, antique lace, and a wide range of alternative mixed media. My process is improvisational, slowly building the collage surface by cutting, piecing, and layering diverse materials and manipulating varied mark-making. I construct complex works on paper that provide intricate texture, line, and color up close, and form, depth, and space from afar—a rich, year-round experience of the garden.

This piece is the sixth in the Mysterium Coniunctionis Series, based on the Jungian archetypal synthesis of opposites. The unity of Dual monism, or non-duality in Buddhist thought are both explored in this series.
Shifting subtle perspectives of light, reflection and saturation are achieved through the use of extreme layering of cold wax medium impregnated with interference, duo, iridescent and opalescent ground Jacquard pigments.

Monsoon is a painting that reflects the existential abnormalities we were all facing as the third year of the pandemic continued to overshadow everything we did. One lesson I learned during that time was that no matter how devastating a situation may be, there is always some unseen silver lining. Monsoon shows this with the use of scale, composition, and the contrast of material to non-material.

Having walked by this old maple tree numerous times in a local cemetery, I began to be drawn into its facial characteristics. It was changing from year to year, and so, I decided to paint it, with some variations, before it was gone.

This piece is based on Suzuki's words in "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind". When we inhale, the air comes into the inner world. When we exhale, the air goes out to the outer world. The inner world is limitless and the outer world is also limitless....actually there is just one whole world. Our throat is like a swinging door....What we call "I" is just a swinging door which moves when we inhale and when we exhale.

This captivating digital composite invites viewers into a vibrant urban tapestry where identity is both concealed and boldly expressed. Let's delve into the layers of meaning within this striking piece.
At its core stands an enigmatic figure, their eyes obscured. Clad in denim overalls adorned with patches and pins, this individual embodies a fusion of workaday practicality and personal flair. The overalls, like a canvas, bear the marks of a life lived -- each patch a fragment of memory, each pin a statement of allegiance or rebellion. The figure stands at the crossroads, caught between anonymity and self-revelation.

Hopeful Romantic Wedding Dress

$2,500

Love is messy, yet we strive to make our wedding garb to look flawless. Loving and acknowledging all your broken parts as beautiful, with a partner to witness and tenderly love your mess, is how I, a hopeful romantic, view marriage and love. My work has been created to bring an authentic aesthetic to bridal garments using scraps from bridal commissions. This dress celebrates imperfection, vulnerability, and acknowledging all that’s left behind. It's a reminder that the most beautiful unions are forged in the willingness to embrace flaws with compassion, to hold space, and to find the sacred in imperfection.

I've always been interested in older, everyday household objects “ the well-used, worn and imperfect. Though small and ordinary, they are a quiet reminder that the true meaning and richness of life still comes from the simple and mundane activities of everyday living. Our relationship with clothing is among the most intimate, complex and unique of all man-made objects. Many of the clothes in these drawings are my own and I use my artwork as a way to explore my own connections with the past.
