Amina Ross is an undisciplined artist fascinated with the abstraction and manipulation of visual and written language. As of late these interests have led to an exploration of PLAY as both a site of inquiry and a critical mode of making. Amina’s practice consists of image-making, writing, performance, and installation strategies.

Jory Drew is an artist whose practice relates the conjunction of thought and vision, as they relate meaning, to pattern and repetition. Drew abstractions work to outline this confusion, of image over meaning or use over function, with the playful nature style.

twinskin is a collaborative project by Joelle Mercedes and Amina Ross. “Twin skin” colloquially refers to the contours left behind after the birth of twins. Amina and Joelle would like to tuck away in this skin-sheath for a bit, there is sanctuary in this site of the underbelly. twinskin’s love of text, color, material and sound articulate a longing, a strangeness, a place between the skin one shows the world and the body that one inhabits.

Rashida KhanBey (Rashi) is creator of Woman Untamed, a sensual dance fitness class created to help people feel strong, sexy and sensually alive in their bodies.
