Maria Teicher, born 1983 in New Jersey, is a fine art portrait and figurative artist residing in Philadelphia, PA. Using historic and personal symbolism, her works blend together contemporary concepts and an honest connection with those around her.
Maria received her MFA in 2013. She exhibits regularly in Philadelphia, New York, and California. When Maria is not painting and drawing, you can find her teaching, photographing, and writing in her blog or for The Art Is Not Dead, a Philly based arts and creative community website she co-found with writer/musician Brian Dougherty.
Bradley Platz’ traditional oil paintings address the increasingly complex issues of permanence in the modern age. With a nod to the classical subject manner, the marble statues represent a timeless, yet forgotten beauty—a silent reminder of our mortality and the passing of time. The environments that these stolid statues inhabit range from the empty softness of raw linen and atmospheric perspective, to recent work depicting the over-development and deconstruction of place—and space—on the edge of continent and future.
