Tessa Estelle Kramer grew up among the cacti and sun soaked landscape of the Southern Arizona desert. Being taught to sew at a young age by her grandmother, the artist started experimenting with the possibilities of what fabric could be transformed into. Taking her inspiration from old quilts, fabrics, discarded remnants and forgotten muumuus, Tessa weaves and sews a world full of texture and color, built from fiber and fabric.
Ella Hilsenrath is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. Born in New Jersey, but having lived in California and Israel for the majority of her childhood, she returned to the East Coast to complete an education at the School of Visual Arts and to pursue her artistic practice. She is interested in art being used as a dialogue between people, each work serving as a line of communication or confrontation. Her artistic influences include Kiki Smith, Alice Neel, Eva Hesse, and Louise Bourgeois.
