Risa's work explores the relation between 2D and 3D, along with her concerns in materials - surface, colors and the tactility. She is fascinated by the aspects of duality in architecture, such as structural engineering that should be obvious from the building itself, but at the same time seems invisible due to lack of information and knowledge.
Maddie Hewitt is a visual artist and curator from Philadelphia, PA. In her artistic practice, Hewitt uses familiar objects to alter the viewer’s conception of time and its natural rhythm. Through video, installation, and performance, fleeting moments transcend into catatonia. Hewitt’s recent work reveals her preoccupation with the notion of daily routines, automatic response, natural phenomena, and cinema.
Hewitt holds a BFA from Tyler School of Art with a focus in Sculpture. Since 2013, she has curated at the Philadelphia collective art space Little Berlin where she organizes month-long exhibitions, film screenings, performances, weekend-long festivals, artist critiques, and other public events.
