“Holly Anderson works primarily with painting as a practice for investigating anxious bodily and psychic sensations. An awareness of the body as a form messily embedded within threatened ecologies belies this interest. With continual reference to the bathers and sunlit landscapes of classical romantic landscape painting, various ways the body might be more strangely implicated in these systems are tentatively explored.”

Kiah Zellner-Smith

“Kiah Grace is a multimedia artist who’s current obsession is eating pizza and promptly painting portraits of dreamy eyed women on the boxes. She is constantly looking for ways to engage the “divine” in common objects and is drawn to the inherent histories of recycled materials. She continues to expand on ways to reinvigorate recycled and discarded objects with color, soul, and meaning.”

Kayla Polan

“Kayla Polan is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist working across traditional and new media. She is a current MFA Candidate at the University of Waterloo. She received her BFA from the Ontario College of Art & Design University.

“A self taught painter, history hoarder and canvas tent enthusiast Sara is directly descended from legends of the old frontier– including Wild Bill and great grandfather Sequah who toured with Buffalo Bill Cody. Her ancestry stretches to the eastern woodlands where her grandfathers were the literal inspiration for J.F. Coopers “Last of the Mohicans” tales. She says she works between yesteryear and tomorrow, on an antique easel, that holds a new canvas and it is a good place to be.”

Idris Mootee

“Idris sees his work as a movement to reflect the technolization of our lives and to manipulate a sense of reality while re-contextualizing what is considered “normal.” They are mash-ups sometimes accented with post-impressionist explosions of colors and textures. Many of his works question and blur the boundaries and intersections between the real, unreal, and the semi-real; they are a profound artistic interpretation and an edgy reflection of our modern-day life”

Dana Gilchrist

“Dana creates in a variety of styles exploring various mediums, tools and techniques for mark-making. Inspired by a love of music and rhythm, she creates in a spontaneous fashion, layering materials and then scraping, scratching, rubbing or sanding to reveal elements below. Details exposed through a worn surface honour the idea of beauty rediscovered through the endurance of time or circumstance. She often incorporates sentimental, found or discarded materials into her mixed media collage work.”

People with something extraordinary in their faces, which is perhaps only visible through a painted picture. Mostly Johann Krammer draws with pencil or charcoal or paints with oil paint in a larger format. In addition to his portraits, he also paints astronomical objects that can otherwise only be observed through large telescopes.”
