Dante Horoiwa, Contemporary Painter

"After a mural is finished, people will begin to picnic in front of the painting. It is almost impossible not to look at it if you are passing by. Whereas in an indoor space, you only enter if you intend to. There is less opportunity for encountering the artwork." ~Dante Horoiwa

Rose Freymuth-Frazier, neo-realism painter, New York City

"My paintings are allegorical, but I expect each viewer will bring their own interpretation to a piece. The question one asks depends on the individual interpretation. If it’s a superficial read of literal abuse or abasement, then that is the subject being addressed within the viewer. If there is a more complex interpretation stemming from one’s life experiences, then the piece becomes personal, and asks questions the viewer is interested in answering."

Ryan McGennisken, outsider artist, wanderer…

"I suppose 'fear of death' has kind of turned into somewhat of an obsession, and recently it's coming out a lot more and my research is definitely getting deeper, exploring other cultures' ways of dealing with death and life, for example, reincarnation."
