Claire Pestaille

Claire Pestaille carefully manipulates art historical masterpieces. Creating her own plots around the painting’s protagonists the artist unearths veiled allegories and secret histories. The artist exchanges lace fans for morning stars or a broach for a Stag beetle, revealing disturbing version’s of the lives of the female characters. Taking on the role of story teller the artist immerses herself in the lives of her subjects, changing their fate and revising their past.

Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade is a 24-year-old artist whose work lies at the intersection of painting, photography, performance, and installation.
Rather than creating representational paintings on a flat canvas, Alexa Meade creates her representational paintings directly on top of the physical subjects that she is referencing. When photographed, the representational painting and the subject being referenced appear to be one and the same as the 3D space of her painted scenes becomes optically compressed into a 2D plane.
