OTHERWORLD ART SHOWCASE VOL. III

Cocoon and Chrysalis

BOTANICAL ART

My name is Isabelle and I am the hands behind Cocoon & Chrysalis. I began working with butterfly wings and florals in 2019, making art for myself and as gifts for friends and family. In February 2020, I decided to give this a try and created my business, previously named Frames By Isabelle. My techniques have advanced over the last three years and I am constantly looking to perfect my skills when creating these pieces. The butterflies and other specimens come from many different places: I find them on nature walks, purchase from ethically sourced vendors, or they are found and given to me by friends and family. I am always looking for new ways to display and honor earths many elements. For me this is a way to connect with and pay tribute to mother nature. As a child and now as an adult, the earth and its many wonders have always and continue to mesmerize me and I am grateful I can create art that honors it. IG:@CocoonAndChrysalis

Kalypsoh

VISUAL ARTIST

Kalypsoh is an oil painter/multi-media artist from Massachusetts.

There is this ethereal place between the light and the dark that contains so much beauty and that is what Kalypsoh portrays in her art. She has work that has you acknowledging the fact that even in darkness there is beauty and that it’s part of what makes us human, it’s what makes us stronger and it’s what makes us appreciate the life we have.

Art is an escape, a visual journal, and an endless way to express feeling. It makes the world go ’round. IG: @kalypsoh

David King Art

VISUAL ARTIST

David King is an artist/oil painter from Massachusetts. His works are often fantastic and elegant, revealing a kind of beauty behind the darkness. Although dark in nature, his work seems to highlight the better side of humanity showing commonalities between us and them. I feel in many of his artworks, it is the human essence and the struggle to accept our differences and shortcomings as humans that shines through. IG: @davidkingart

I started learning crochet in late April and I haven’t been able to put it down, even the pain in my hands hasn’t deterred me. While I can’t read a pattern currently I do have a knack for freehanding nearly anything I look at! Now after years of illustration I’m now a self declared fiber artist and love every minute.

Hi! I’m Melissa, the girl behind the artwork. I’m from Central MA where I live with my husband and our two cats. I combine color mixology with intuitive brushstrokes and mark-making to create paintings using mixed media. I’m inspired by experiences and beautiful things, approaching each painting with lots of passion and wild guesses. With my art I hope to inspire and spark feelings of nostalgia.

Ara n Wonderland

MULTIMEDIA ARTIST

As a child growing up was very different than the usual. I wasnt really allowed to express myself the way my peers could. One thing I always had though, was a pen and paper. I would draw and forget about everything. Eventually, it progressed to photography, capturing a moment in time and then it turned into recreating a moment. So as you can see, art for me is everything, its everywhere and it is power.

Alexasartworks

VISUAL ARTIST

Alexa creates visual connections between the human experience and nature by combining aspects of humanity with natural elements in ways we wouldn’t normally see in day-to-day life. She explores her imagination and hones in on similarities and contrasts. Her paintings range from surreal to entirely abstract. Her personal influence stems from art’s impact on her as well as time spent exploring both cities and nature, the emotions they evoke, and her unique perspective as a correctional mental health counselor. Inspiration comes from anything from someone’s dress as they walk by to a plant by the river on a rainy-day hike. When looking at a piece of artwork, people leave the present (even if only for a moment) forgetting what’s around them and entering a new realm of possibility; They’re only focus is seeing the artwork and understanding it by connecting it to something within their life. Art provides a route of expression that is entirely unique to the individual, but can evoke emotions and connections with others. Alexa’s work has provided a therapeutic outlet for her through the process of physically creating. Her artwork is not pre-sketched or planned out on canvas. Instead, it’s created as a journey, with layer after layer of paint slowly forming shapes and colors. Currently, Alexa incorporates different forms of art into group and individual therapy in her career. Whether just taking it in or actually creating it, art provides a peak into an individual’s mind that can’t quite be captured with words.

TRADITIONAL CARVING

The Māori have a great respect for nature and have many legends about the creation of the earth and all its inhabitants.
Many of these legends revolve around the spirits or gods who created or protect each part of their world such as the mountains, the forests, the lakes and the creatures of the sea.
Most carvings combine elements from several areas of mythology which interact with each other to tell a story.
Each element has its own specific meaning and the way they are portrayed or combined is what gives a carving its own special character.
The meanings of some elements vary from region to region but all share common roots.
