Natalia Mendez

“Natalia Mendez's work exclusively depicts her friends and family. She explores the emotional and physical ideas of relationships. Mendez believes when painting, the artist’s subconscious mind inadvertently reflects onto what he or she is creating.

The quantity of time she uses to focus on portraying an image allows for specificity. ”

Kyra Nijskens

“Kyra Nijskens’ vivid work wavers between a devotion for painterly processes and a conceptual analysis of the painting. Investigating the interplay between traditional techniques and the uncontrolled image-making machine of the digital era, she started to reconsider the painting as a transparent screen. By layering individual sheets of film acetate, allowing for infinite new combinations, she researches the changeability and temporality of an image while destabilizing the painting's permanence.”
