Denouement No 8, Oil on Canvas, 40 x 30 inches

Denouement No 6, Oil on Canvas, 50 x 50 inches

Pattinson's paintings are in many collections around the world and his work has been reviewed in many publications across the country. In 2013 the public gallery in Stratford presented a retrospective of his work with an accompanying catalogue. These paintings represent an evolution in his work, backing away from hard edges and canvas boundaries, moving towards a freer, unbounded iteration. Scott Pattinson's paintings range from 8 x 8 inch jewels to large dramatic 8 foot canvases.

Unraveled, Mixed Media on Panel, 54 x 60 inches (Top, Right)

Figure Seven, Charcoal on Paper, 19.5 x 25.5 inches

Shannon II, Charcoal on Paper, 13.5 x 18.5 inches

"I've always been fascinated with the human form, body language and gesture. Inspired by thumb puppets and marionettes, I began this project by drawing from live models, asked to repeatedly collapse on a small platform, push themselves upright and collapse again. The physicality of working on a large scale turns the act of drawing into a sort of dance, where my body movement mimics that of the figure.  I become physically connected to the drawing." - Adam Markovic


 
Adam Markovic founded "Studio Santo Spirito", an atelier in the artisan quarter of Santo Spirito, Florence where he focused on teaching fundamental drawing and painting techniques. In 2013 Adam was invited by the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) to present his work at the Toronto International Art Fair as a "Curator's Pick of Up and Coming Artists". Adam currently lives and works in Montreal, Canada.

Passage, Ceramic, 32 x 60 x 4 inches

These vessels are created with a wide variety of clay bodies that are hand-built, carved, inscribed and painted with layers of under-glaze and oxides that are then washed off. The ones in this grouping have undergone a salt-soda and wood firing process. The metal stitches are made of steel welding rod and fired with the piece. The vessels have inscribed words, upcycled glass and 23 kt gold inside.


 


Green Landscape with Blue Tree, Oil on Canvas, 51 x 48 inches

Femme aved chapeau, Oil on Canvas, 20 x 18 inches

"In these figurative paintings Jennifer Hornyak renders isolated faces against monochromatic backgrounds in thick viscous layers of paint. Indeed, the profound emotional impact of the works emerge from the fertile meeting of conflicting impulses: the painterly desire to let paint itself convey meaning - Hornyak strives for increasing abstraction in her work - and the refusal to abandon the burden of the image - the human form. The artist successfully creates a liminal space between figuration and abstraction where poetic meaning and optic pleasure resonate." - Victoria LeBlanc, McClure Gallery

Gold Moon and Jupiter, Oil on Canvas, 60 x 60 inches

Alex Cameron is celebrated as a well known contemporary painter with an exceptional outlook on the world. His oils, watercolours and early acrylics are in many museums, corporate and private collections and catalogues. Alex's current work displays the virtuosity of an artist in his prime as he continues to create new abstract and landscape canvases that are among the best. Travel has been a steady source of material for Alex's work. He absorbed the varying landscape traveling the racing circuit through Canada and the United States. Through his brother, a geologist, he visited mining camps in western and northern Canada, including the Rocky Mountains and the Yukon. These trips account for a large number of his dramatic landscape paintings, an inspiration he continues to draw on. 


Yeokryu, Screenprinted Hand Sewn Felt, 24 x 24 x 2 inches

"Over time my interests have prompted me to search for unfamiliar territory in the shaping of industrial felt, developing structural relief in conjunction with two-dimensional surface design.  And with the help of digital technology these two things can connect seamlessly.  Each small module joined by hand stitching is a kind of cell in a body that contains specific information, all combining to form descriptive images.  At this point in my journey felt remains an essential aspect of my identity as a maker.  More than simply material, it continues to excite and stimulate my thought process and hold out the possibility of new language." - Chung-Im Kim

Shayne Dark, This Column Ends, Steel, 120 x 26 x 26 inches (Left) Hamilton Beach, Susan Valyi, Recycled Metal, 72 x 72 x 37 inches (Centre) Murmuration, Jeremy Guy, Engineered Black Granite, 84 x 48 x 36 inches (Right)

Swimmer's Moment, Bronze and Steel, 81 x 35 x 9 inches

"This piece takes it's name from the title of a poem by Canadian poet Maraget Avison.  A swimmer raises one arm, propping up a looming triangular form of razor-edge sharpness which threatens from above.  It is a work about the decisions one makes in the face of life's many challenges." - W.W. Hung

 

 

Suspended Man, Steel, Wood and Plexiglass, 71 x 34 x 34 inches

"I am interested in expressing the human condition through contemporary figurative sculpture. I use the human body, placed in abstract spatial contexts, to suggest different narratives and psychological states. Many of my sculptural works explore the themes of mortality, determinism (fate), free will, and the tenacity of the human spirit." - W.W. Hung

 

 


Glacial Series: Group of Three Dropstones, Bronze over Steel, 30 x 60 x 60 inches

This artwork was conceived as a contemporary reference to a monolithic composition of glacial erratics, an elegant grouping of carefully executed minimal sculptures. Shayne Dark's striking use of shape and geometric edges are meant to complement and enhance their organic surroundings, bringing art and nature together in a harmonious display. The bronze surface develops a rich patina as it weathers.

In 2015, the Albright Knox Museum added a number of Dark's large scale Glacial Series sculptures to their collection and are exhibiting them on grounds of the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens as part of their Public Art Initiative.

 

 


Ring, Steel, 86 × 72 × 32 inches

Douglas Bentham offers the first sculpture in his new Rings series at Oeno Gallery's Sculpture Garden this year. A network of leaf-like elements in rich painted steel combine to create circular motifs on a large scale, reminiscent of wreaths and garlands. 


 

"My process of working is rooted in the Modernist tradition, embracing growth and transformation. I'm only satisfied with a work of art when the original concept becomes transformed by its making. I enter into a kind of prayer with the material with the goal of creating a rhythm that will carry me through many days in the studio. I address several pieces simultaneously, always on the edge of seeing the art in unexpected ways, allowing it to assert itself by my presence." - Douglas Bentham
