Brittney’s interest in social change has led her to an artistic practice that embraces artists to redefine why they create, how they create, and for what purposes. She’s most interested in identity and culture and often questions notions of power and ownership in her work. Her process engages ideas of trust, beauty, and memory.
A native of Memphis, Jess is an emerging artist, primarily working in acrylic and ink. Much of her work is abstract - an expression of memories, ideas, and principles. She uses contrast and bold colors to communicate hope in the midst of a painful world. Her work is heavily influenced by water and movement. Tinsley’s signature look combines an acrylic wash, heavy body acrylic, organic line work, and five lines incorporated throughout the piece – one for each of her children.
Tinsley believes that art can change the world and that good art causes people to step outside of their box and see something from a new perspective. Art breaks down barriers and makes the world a more beautiful place – even as it exposes the raw and genuine humanity in each of us.
Michelle Fair is an oil painter from Memphis, TN. She received her MFA from Memphis College of Art in 2014, where she first began exploring themes of memory and loss. Through her paintings she aims to visualize the fading of memories over time, the forgetting of details about people or places after so long.
