The realistic portraits and still-lifes of Adam Vinson follow in the trompe l’oeil tradition, tricking our eyes into believing what we are looking at is real. But with this Vinson also creates puzzles for the mind as some of the realistic imagery is created from dissections of reality, such as multiple Polaroids placed together to form a portrait. See more of Vinson’s work below.

Margaret Bowland (b.1953)
"Beauty makes sense to me, has weight for me, only when it falls from grace. It starts to matter when it carries damage. Sorrow allows it to cast a shadow. It becomes three-dimensional. It enters our world."
Margaret Bowland’s spellbinding and psychologically charged work brings viewers face to face with contentious culture while affirming the resilience and triumph of the human spirit. A masterful observer of life’s unpredictable nature, her work conveys universal themes through unusually specific insights. Bowland’s work explores the subtle and nuanced edges between strength and vulnerability, certainty and doubt, faith and disbelief. Bowland’s probing and deeply personal images call into question our societal expectations of gender, race, and beauty.
