Adrienne Simms grew up in New York City, and moved as a teenager to San Francisco, where she currently resides. Inspired by history, horror movies and her dreams, she seeks to create a world that is her own. The female form is invariably the starting point of her imagery, the face and hands specifically are the means of expression. She enjoys exploring the tension between the macabre and the humorous.
Yosiell Lorenzo is an artist living and working in Oakland, CA. His studio at Faultline Artspace is a collective of artists from whom he often draws inspiration. Sicklings are creatures that have inhabited his imagination for a long time, and their world has evolved and expanded through the years. Yosiell taught himself to sculpt, create molds and pour resin to bring these creatures to life.
Yosiell’s work incorporates a variety of textures and washes, often using a palette of earth tones or dark and somber colors. Yosiell draws inspiration from the natural world, the occult and the darker elements of the human condition. Thematically, he continues to explore issues of sadness and longing in varying mediums, including sculpture, paintings, graphite, ink, mixed media and digital vector art.
Chris Leib: “In the digital age, with instant communication available, the public is ceaselessly bombarded with information, usually light on analysis, but correspondingly full of partisan sound and fury, signifying nothing or very like nothing. But reality cannot be concealed forever. Americans are aware now, after thirty years of corporatization, offshoring, downsizing, and declining living standards, and a dozen years of war in the Middle East, that things have gone badly awry.”
MJ Lindo’s artworks translate a story through imagery and subliminal messaging using animals and motifs. They are stories told through the expressions on womens faces and through the suggested motifs used in her paintings. While her art evokes emotion and wonder it often shares insight into a contemporary women’s story. It is up to the observer to put the pieces together of the story or emotion. MJ often works with a wooden canvas which adds a sort of strength and dimension to her paintings. It often leaves us with a feeling of transparency in her subjects.
