About the Artists:  

Heather Benjamin is an multi-media artist based in Providence, Rhode Island. Her autobiographical work is expressed through the graphic depiction of female sexuality and mysticism. The foundation of her art practice lies in DIY/Zine culture, printmaking, comic-making, and self-publishing. She veers between illustration and painting in creating her explicit and other-worldly characters.    

Emma Kohlmann is a figurative artist currently based in Massachusetts. She creates a large number of colorful abstract shapes which are transformed into stylized images. Her body of work consists of hundreds of variations of animals, nudes, and fauna. Kohlmann’s jewel toned water colors are often formatted in a grid forming a vibrant installation.

Maria Paz is a Chilean-born artist based in Oakland, CA. Paz works primarily in ceramics, creating illustrative sculptures that are deeply personal while also reflective upon the collective traumas of the globally oppressed. In 2015, Paz began to work as a lab technician in the ceramics department at Fort Mason in San Francisco, CA. In 2018, Paz joined a sustainable ceramic collective called Mutual Stores in East Oakland. Her ceramic illustrations aim to archive global events in addition to her personal encounters with dictatorship, migration, and Otherness.
