Sarah Lee is the 1st Prize Winner of the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Founders' Emerging Artist Award 2023, she creates sculptures of animals that reveal fragility, vulnerability, insecurity, human emotions, awkwardness, odd self-inflicting behaviors, adaptation and survival. Eggshells are fragile empty houses that are abandoned after birth; they become lifeless and no longer serve a purpose.
Hannah Tjia is the 3rd Prize Winner of the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Founders' Emerging Artist Award 2023; she is a painter and draftswoman who combines figurative studio painting with illustration and decorative design inspired by her love of folklore and fairytales. Her work explores otherworldly creatures and motifs representative of her imagination and perception of reality.
Karin Hauck is the 2nd Prize Winner of the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Founders' Emerging Artist Award 2023, the focus of her interest was always the human being and his consciousness, in thinking, feeling, acting and being. The desire arose to express their knowledge and experiences through paintings. She started to realize this with realistic oil painting in 2015.
Congratulations to the 2023 Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Founders’ Emerging Artist Award Winners: Sarah Lee, Karin Hauck, and Hannah Tjia!
