Andrew is a native New Yorker who studied photography at SVA from 1990-1994 as a transfer student. He writes:

“This was a blessing in disguise because it enabled [me] to venture out into multiple facets of art whilst [at SVA]. Since the usual college credits were taken care of at previous schools [I] was able to be like a kid in a candy store and take classes in painting, film, design, writing, computers, video, and advertising.”

Andrew is a professional photographer who works in advertising, editorial, and celebrity photography, and he co-owns Vis Vitae Studios in NYC. He “has never ceased to take continuing education classes over the last 23 years (mostly at SVA) in all mediums. All of these classes greatly influence all of [my] professional and personal works on a daily basis.”

Viewers may agree with Andrew that this show is about his “specific venture into clay and digital sculpture” and that “this experience was more about him pushing himself out of his comfort zone, learning something new, and by having it be more literal it was a clearer gauge to him as far as how he was progressing on his journey.”

Nicky writes: “I have been working over the last couple of years on a group of portraits in oil paint and mixed media drawing material. It is an engaging process for me, the interpretation of a live model; mixing careful observation with an expressive response in color and line. Often the portraits feel like character descriptions in a short story. The results are always a surprise, never planned, like meeting a new friend.”

During a trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2011, she felt in love with the beauty of the images taken and started to take her camera everywhere. Being exposed to different languages and cultures ever since childhood made her become extremely aware of her surroundings and she developed a particular taste for street photography and documentary. The choice of unique characters and subcultures are also imminent in her work. Her photographic style features strong contrasts and extremely bright colors.
