Marina Dunbar graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Columbus State University. She currently resides and make art from her studio in Columbus, Georgia. Marina’s media of choice are watercolor and resin. In her Horizon paintings she works with pigmented, luminous resin, building up color and marks with each layer.

The work presented below, from the series Horizon are created with layers of multicolored resin, overlapping to create depth and vibrant color.
Analogue photography has always been at the heart of Andrew G Fisher’s work. Sometimes photographs are all that are needed; sometimes the artist reacts to the photographs to create more. Andrew is self-taught and fiercely independent in his approach to produce work with integrity and meaning. The images below are part of the series ‘Forgotten Corners’, described by the artist with the following words: “The passage of time has always fascinated and intrigued me. Unchangeable and inevitable, a seemingly abstract concept which has confounding effects on every aspect of life. Each of my projects seeks to identify the relationship between time, place and people; how one inevitably affects the others.”
Artist Aakash Nihalani uses brightly colored tape to create isometric rectangles and squares in art galleries and locations around New York.

Nihalani tries to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality. Below a selection from his indoor works:
