Hannah Margolis_In many ways, Hannah is still four years old laying on her belly at her Mimi and Poppy’s house, adrift in a Persian rug sea, carried on a printer paper raft, supplies in a constant state of dwindling. It is that which can be created out of nothing that allows her to persevere. And it is the joy in creating it that allows her spirit to remain lifted. Art is an anchor thrown over the hull of the mind. Art is meditative like the thumping of a human heart in a quiet room.
Carolina Muñoz_Carolina is a Chilean artist with a growing interest in the physical possibilities of materials and the uncertainty of their behavior in time and space. With a background in architecture and sciences, there is underlying objectivity that is challenged within her works.

Since 2016, Carolina has been working as an architect for a couple of firms in Santiago and also assisting in building and writing courses at her university.
