Francoise de Felice, France: “My mother and the difficult relationship I had with her are what guide my work”

"My canvas portrays the different faces of the same woman. Fairy and witch are juxtaposed, there's a duel. I use women as a springboard to show that internal struggle within all of us, wrestling with feelings of happiness and yet unhappiness."

Aron Wiesenfeld, Narrative Painter: Don’t Look Now, But We’re No Longer On Solid Ground

"Fantasy by definition is an escape, and it was a way for me to avoid difficult situations and emotions in my adolescence; however, I don’t think of reading as escapism. I think the activities of daily life are more commonly an escape from difficult or strong emotions. It’s in literature and art that one can usually come into more direct contact with those things. That’s why art is so fascinating. Even fantasy books, ironically."

"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
