Jen Corace is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design who has been
working as a freelance illustrator and artist in Providence, RI. Since graduating, she has been spending her time here and there and concerning herself with detailed motifs and seductive line work. With her background in illustration, Corace's work is often narrative in nature and explores the juxtaposition of developed environments against more rural settings.
Los Angeles based artist, Rebecca Artemisa Urias is a self-taught artist. Urias has quickly received great attention as an artist to watch in the near future. In previous shows, she has quickly sold out, making this exhibition - her largest to date - much anticipated. Urias draws inspiration from her childhood and family memories, merging them with nature and historical events to create a surreal, dreamlike world where her characters play out their capricious and mischievous fantasies.
Katy Horan studied Illustration and Animation at the Rhode Island school of
Design and received her BFA in 2003. This Texas-born and now New York based
Artist's work is a result of her affection and affinity to childhood stories and the mysticism of past folklore. Horan develops a unique sensibility in evoking a non-traditional adaptation of timeless stories. What makes her paintings extraordinary is her ability to evoke and engage her audience into her imagination.
A graduate of Pratt Institute, Dan-ah Kim is a Brooklyn based artist and
designer who freelances in film, television, and illustration. When not working on film related projects, Kim finds time to create fanciful and thought provoking pieces. Within her work Dan-ah Kim beautifully captures the silent, but fleeting moments of her subjects. Her narration aims to develop each painting as a wondrous frame from beloved story or adventure
Allison Cole also graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2003 and lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island making art, drawing comics, and running her online shop, Bang Bang You're Thread. Alternative Comics published her first graphic novel, Never Ending Summer, in 2004. She has many more projects in progress, including work on her second graphic novel and artwork for various upcoming group shows.
