    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.
