Rankin and Andrew Gallimore combine avant-garde artistry with 90’s neo-pop in “Saved by the Bell” for Hunger Magazine. This captures the chaos of color that defined those times.

Never beginning never ending her limbs are like a melody whispering in the winds. This is a story that captures that ever elusive time period that lingers between seasons.

Birgit Kos “No Filter” by David Sims for Interview Magazine March 2018

I dispel the anarchy of archaic notions that speak to me as if I am not here… as if I am not there… as if I am merely what I wear. Depth is met by my ability to hold my tongue. A single notion that I doth to share as I bring forth my soul to bare. To speak not when spoken to but when inspired to truly care ~ I am a soldier of silence, a fighter for fair. Art waits for no woman as it slowly works to transform itself.

Rianne Van Rompaey claims the chaos in “Clinic” by Harley Weir for Love Magazine, Spring/Summer 2018. Don’t think you know my mind dear, for it is a tale to tell. Inside this sordid mind trap is a story Ne’er-do-well. So stop and smell the flowers. Scream into the night. For all we are is what we see, a framing of shear delight. Destiny is the dame that feeds our soul and ships our shame, unto a place of sovereign grace where we sip from the earth’s sweetened teet.
