Meet Christopher Rico: Visual Artist
James Austin Murray captivates us in his work with ivory black oil and that alone. A difficult approach. It holds an intriguing form and the way it seizes the light is quite extraordinary. The execution of this technique is excellent, somehow drawing the viewer in by its precision.
Valeri Larko finds beauty in the places most of us pass by, documenting gantries, roads, and piers from Jersey City to the Bronx. She’s a classical plein air painter in a time when most artists use those outside hours only to prepare for what they consider their real work in their studio.
Christopher Rico's paintings feel like an invitation to a more in-depth conversation about what it means to be human. The deep blacks painted in great swoops and arc with a Chinese calligraphy brush float in luminescent washes, lending an easthetic that feels both new yet rooted.
Dylan Martinez combines several glassblowing and sculpting techniques to form hyperrealistic plastic bags from molten glass. Through these works, Martinez creates scenarios that obscure the viewer’s interpretation of reality and illusion.
