Suzanne Sattler

Suzanne Sattler, Graphite on paper

When I first saw the work of Suzanne Sattler, the first words that came to mind were whimsical and desolate. These delicate drawings express many conflicted emotions in such a fragile yet feminine manner. Focused on successful and failed relationships, she manages to incorporate a relationship between the concept of daily life and that of nature. Some of these narrative illustrations are presented in a monochrome landscape with delicately pencil markings, making them mysterious, whimsical and melancholic.

What is art? Well, if Edgar Degas was right and art “is not what you see” but “what you make others see”, then art can be anything. However, what if the vision someone else has isn’t quite what you expected? And what if this vision is bound by a ton of T&Cs? This kind of issue has become prominent since visual material has taken over social media.

When Instagram first launched in 2010 it was a social network where users could share their personal pictures. Since then, it has grown and evolved into a platform where businesses, social influencers and even artists can showcase their work.

Wagner Pinto

Brazilian artist Wagner Pinto produces work that feels like an explosion. Riotous color and combative line work absorbs the viewer into the rather chaotic world Pinto creates. The artist explains that his imagery is often derived from the folk art of a variety of indigenous cultures, as well as the symbolism in religious artwork.
