Untitled (D1197) by Alan Perez. Acrylic and colored pencil on paper, 2019. 20 x 26". Alan Perez is an artist who is interested in the dark side. His work may not always be the nicest or the friendliest, but to be honest with you, he's more interested in the darkness and mysteries of life. Alan is a multidisciplinary artist who works in charcoal, paint, fiber, mixed media and ceramics. While he enjoys many materials, he identifies as a sculptor first, noting that sculpture is much more real and much more appealing to him.

Untitled (P0791) by Maria Radilla. Mixed media on stretched canvas, 2016. 30 x 30". Marilla Radilla says, "I started creating art at NIAD in 2005, and since being here I've learned how to make dolls and embroider quilts in my own style. I'm inspired by my childhood in Mexico, fashion, food, flowers, and traditions where we give and receive gifts. These are the things that I really love. When I make artwork with fabrics, I think about my experiences: growing up, I had dolls and played with them in fields of flowers by my home. I love flowers that are red or yellow or white. I also look at a lot of books, especially a big book of colorful birds and a catalogue filled with pictures of beautiful old dolls. I go through the images and pick a different doll to embroider onto a quilt or make into my own doll. I've also made dolls based on figures in paintings, like the people in Goya's paintings of the Spanish courts."
Untitled (P1651) by Matthew Wilson. Mixed media on board, 2016. 16 x 20".

And, after studying videos of machines, heavy equipment, transportation and amusement park ride, he creates his drawings from memory.
