Los Angeles artist Katy Ann Gilmore has a background in both art and mathematics, using that knowledge to craft work that looks at "the relationship between 2D, perpendicular planes and their distortions into 3D space.” Her drawings add illusions and a context to otherwise ordinary and flat spaces.

Michelle Avery Konczyk's beautifully strange portraits of young women with ghostly appearances and third eyes are a far cry from the cheerful, impressionistic paintings we commonly associate with the watercolor medium. "It is my goal," the artist says, "to push the boundaries of the medium and take it where no artist has gone before, not only in technique and subject matter, but in presentation."
