Candace Jensen in The Adroit Journal
"Despite the imposed technologization of COVID-era communication, these pieces bear the aspect of the deeply ancient. Little’s inkblots resemble the Lascaux cave paintings in texture and shade; Jensen’s intricately rendered beasts on deer and goatskin parchment leap from the pages of illuminated manuscripts; Stevenson’s calligraphy suggests the delicate, swooping lines of ink-wash Tang dynasty scrolls. The artists’ collective attention to the discrete, deliberate act of mark-making—their deep historical knowledge of color, form, and line—enables this fluid descent into time."
Joyce Yamada in Art Spiel
"Trees and forests tend to be my shorthand for Nature. For many years I also played with tree and human anatomy—trunks and limbs—to make our interconnections literal. I also use landscapes as evidence of human misuse, abuse, and ignorance of how to survive sustainably. "
Nishiki Sugawara-Beda in Whitehot Magazine of Contemporary Art
"...these works hail from the artist’s KuroKuroShiro series, which translates to “black and white.” Over video chat, Sugawara-Beda said she adopted a monochromatic practice in 2019. “I used to use a lot of colors,” she explained. “Each color had a language to me.” Five years ago the artist began limiting her repertoire to just a few colors in each artwork, and then just one."
José-Ricardo Presman in the Bushwick Daily
"“The goal is to bring back integrity and dignity to earthly humanity,” Presman tells Bushwick Daily about his latest collection of visual art pieces, which center primarily on a series of abstract wax pastels that appear on what he describes as an extremely ordinary classroom blackboard. These are given simple, blunt names and depict ghostly vestiges of the natural world reduced to its elements."
