www.re-title.com/artists/Marina-Tsesarskaya.asp

Award-winning artist Marina Tsesarskaya is a graduate of Kiev Academy of Fine Arts, Ukraine. Interested in the ways in which experience, experiment, and other art forms shape a work, Tsesarskaya seeks to explore the process by which the past is surfacing into the present and complementing it as well as investigating the physical and psychological relationships among and between the characters and viewers. Her works invite the viewer to read fragments of a larger narrative by suggesting the context implicit in each image and, by connecting all of the prints, to form a tale. In such a way, she creates a discourse open to multiple readings thereby allowing the viewer to search and find his/her own meaning, based on the most universal human themes via her own personal experience.

Artist dj whelan is the survivor of nomadic hippie parents that traveled extensively throughout the U.S. during the sixties and seventies. After 42 residences in 31 years, she landed on the west coast and currently splits her time between a flat in Berkeley and a cabin in Joshua Tree. Her family, childhood and itchy feet greatly inform the work she was destined to make. All forms of creativity were strongly encouraged, but collage, assemblage, construction and environmental art have always been her primary means of self-expression, along with driving, music and literary embellishment. Her work illustrates an inclination towards the layering of life’s tiny yet significant details.
