Letter From The Editor
No doubt 2016 has been a crazy year, but amidst the lunacy we’ve put together this issue to make sure we’re keeping you in the know. We’re going to clear away the fog here on four phenomenal artists.
First we’re going to tell you the story of the Chanimation Brothers. A serious duo whose creations are nothing but super. These dudes have many mediums in their arsenal, what struck me first though, was their work made with paper. Layered paper sculptures with such an attention to detail, it’s almost mind blowing.
Then we’ll talk about Regina Valluzzi. A scientist and an engineer. But also a painter. A rare user of both sides of her brain, not for separate tasks, but both sides for her art. Her abstract paintings are all inspired
by science, from Rube Goldberg machines to the intricacies of computer chips.
Finally we have Emily Beadle and her colorful, explosive landscapes. Using only a palette knife and her skills with color, Emily is able to capture the essence of a scene. She creates a seriously unexpected depth.
In the meantime, we’re making a ton of changes behind the scenes to make sure you’re always connected to the heart of the art world; local and global. Here’s to 2017 and the future of the creative evolution of the earth!
