The Tehran born Iranian artist Niloufar Banisadr creates narrative with her photography, often staged or over-imposed on other works. Her pieces are contrasted yet harmonious, they are aesthetically placed and the artist speaks of herself as an Iranian woman through her work. When asked about her position as an Iranian female artists, Banisadr responded: “Here, in the western world, as soon as you are introduced as an Iranian artist, people expect controversial attitudes, and sometimes look for something negative; but in a certain way, we are proud of our country, proud of its history and its culture, that is so strong today. All is not perfect in our country, but art should and may breed elevation, not controversy.

Christopher H. Martin, Aria Chroma Discs, 2017, acrylic on acrylic, 24 to 48 in. diameters

The serene, captivating large-scale works of Christopher Martin are calming yet captivating with their soft palettes and electric movements. Martin credits his success and his ability to express transcendence through his works to his signature technique “verre églomisé”, a reverse glass painting practice, which is accomplished by working on the back plane of Lucite surfaces. This, the artist claims, accounts for the depth and luminosity achieved in his works, and allow for their mediative effect on the viewer.
