Jessica Lichtenstein is a multi-disciplinary artist from New York whose artworks range from digital prints, gold/silver leaf canvases, concrete sculptures, and most recently NFTs. Her works focus predominantly on issues of femininity, sexuality, fragility, and the emotions that blur those lines. She is best known for her large-scale digital scenes of forests, whereupon closer inspection the viewer encounters a world composed of women almost in a pointillistic fashion. Most recently she has been creating concrete hearts, embedded with thousands of engraved lockets and watches, the wall sculpture itself reminiscent of a nostalgic locket bursting with thoughts, emotions, fears, poetry, pornograpny, and life in general.
Marisol Martinez is a Latina Abstract painter who paints through a meditative and spiritual process. She explores human behavior and emotion by the use of color and shapes as a language, the first language we all learn at the beginning stages of life. Her intention is to evoke the viewer's memory and emotion which will allow them to have their own personal experience with the work.
