Paul studied fine art and graphic design in the 90s and early 2000s, and his work shows an unmistakable graphic sensibility after years working as a designer.
"When I'm out running long distances in our natural and wild places, blood in my ears, sweat in my eyes, brain flooded with adrenaline and endorphins, the colours, forms and spaces of nature are perceived in broad strokes, in flashes and in approximations. I've been intrigued with recording these impressions in two dimensions."
Jen Goddard is a contemporary classical artist working primarily in oils with an additional focus on expressive mixed-media drawing.
With a background in both art and dance, she seeks organic forms and gestures in all her subjects, from elements of the natural world to the languages of the body and face.
Her portraits were shortlisted at the 2014 and 2015 BP Portrait Awards in the UK, and selected as finalist in the 2015 Kingston Portrait Prize. She has had many solo and group shows and has work in private collections in Europe and across Canada.
Quebec artist Lissa Tourigny uses oil paint to capture women exploring the memories of summer. Pink Box is based on a photograph by famed photographer Richard Avedon. "This painting symbolizes for me an era that no longer exists yet society continues to box women into this beauty standard". "My paintings are a map of my life, my travels and the emotions that touch me."
" My passion for water and the ocean, which is really present through my art have built the artist that i am. I work with oil paint on canvas and my images are mostly figurative women exploring the memories of summer. My paintings are a map of my life, my travels and the emotions that touch me. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it."
This nude in oil with windswept hair evokes a sense of freedom. The strength of the pose is softened by the fading limbs. Tourigny captures the sensuality of a woman beautifully.
