Baseline, Oil on Panel, 55 x 79 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 studied with "Studio Santo Spirito", an atelier in the artisan quarter of Santo Spirito, which 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.



Clyde House #89, Oil on canvas, 50 x 60 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 Straford presented a retrospective of his work with an acompaning catalogue. He paints from a renovated barn in rural Southern Ontario and a cabin in the Muskokas. The Clyde House series represent an evolution in his work, backing away from hard edges and canvas boundaries, moving towards a freer, unbounded iteration.

Fields of Wheat, Chromogenic Print on Dibond, 24 x 48 inches

"My current series of photos captures the fleeting beauty of landscapes and objects we see every day, driving along the highway, but with a perspective that is shifted and in motion. This beauty is often trapped by our static views and desensitized perceptions of the world around us. All photos in this series were shot looking out the window of a moving vehicle using a low shutter speed to blur the patterns and colours of subjects. The images are then further abstracted by digital manipulation, turning what is often dismissed as unappealing and banal into enigmatic and moody images." 

- Etienne Labb? 


Sojourn, Ceramic, 45 x 95 x 3 inches

These vessels are created with a wide variety of clay bodies, hand-built, carved, inscribed, painted with layers of under-glaze and oxides that are then washed off. The ones in this grouping are salt, salt-soda and wood fired. 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.

 


Woman Walking, Oil on Canvas, 51 x 48 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

Sacr?-Coeur, Acrylic on Panel, 104 x 64 inches


Yeokryu, Screenprinted Hand Sewn Felt, 24 x 24x 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
