The Stump Sisters by Stefanie Vega

Sisters love can't be undone when loosing hands or feet.
They combine their limbs and act as one and learn to make ends meet.
From the tales that left profound impressions in my earliest childhood memories, I began working not only with unwanted doll parts, but with skull & bones & birds. They spoke to me of wanting to tell the bigger story. The dolls we played with as children were the totems of our dreams. Upon them we laid our hopes & fears...upon them we projected our greatest selves.
- Stefanie Vega

Das Verbunden Fräuleins (The Connected Miss)
Aunia Kahn is figurative artist, photographer, creative entrepreneur and inspirational speaker. She’s has created a hybrid art form combining many disciplines which she invariably designs, builds, and executes characters, non-existent places, dreams, illusions, fears and fables into creations melding elements of classical and contemporary art. Her art is often compared to movie-like stills hiding away long stories within their visuals.

Spidora by Ransom & Mitchell
Ransom & Mitchell is the fine art nom de plume for the artistic collaborations of Jason Mitchell & Stacey Ransom. Director-photographer Jason Mitchell and set designer-photo illustrator Stacey Ransom create highly-detailed and visually-lush portraits & scenarios. Their work is narrative in nature and draws upon the darker undercurrent that exists within all aspects of society. They aim to create worlds that cannot exist, through a unique combination of cinematic lighting, theatrically designed sets, and an illustrative approach that is inspired by the Italian and Dutch Master painters. The resulting digital art blurs the lines between traditional photography and classical painting so the viewer is unsure as to what is “real” and what we created either as sets & props or as digital painting.

Broken by Alexandra Manukyan

The central theme that unites all my paintings examines how seemingly separate and isolated life experiences actually disguise the extent of our individual and communal bonds. The "masks" and the accompanying identities we all assume depending on the life role we must play, obstructs the conscious mind from acknowledging what truly unites us through the isolation and chaos: our shared encounters of pain, loss, desire, and longing for serenity and acceptance.
