Olivia Johnston, CPT 38 2016, photographic inkjet print, 21" x 21"

For the photographY lover:  Olivia johnston

Recently selected as one of the region's top emerging artists by RBC, Olivia's delicate and thoughtful photographs would be a great edition to your art collection. Because her images are created using traditional analogue photographic processes, they are often only seen for the first time weeks, months, even years after they are captured. The photograph is, therefore, inextricably linked with geographic and emotional circumstances, a tangible representation of memory.

For the landscape lover:  peter rotter

Have you ever wanted your windows to look out into the middle of the woods or onto a snow-covered lake? With Peter Rotter's paintings, you can get those views without having to move. Peter is drawn to a particular place by a luminous colour, a certain slant of light, an interesting shape, or shadow, movement of sky, a memory of sound, smell and sense of ease. These elements are what interest and excite him, stirring his passion to paint.

Peter Rotter, Evening Warmth, oil on canvas, 30" x 40"

Nava Waxman, New Moon, encaustic on panel, 30" x 30"

FOR THE ABSTRACT LOVER:   NAVA WAXMAN

Nava Waxman explores theatrical movement and the recursive, flowing motifs in her highly sculptural encaustic paintings. Encaustic is an ancient wax-based medium achieved through the heating of beeswax, mixing in pigment, and applying in countless layers with brushed, scrapers, and countless other tools. Waxman is the ideal artist to present to anyone who loves to get lost in the countless swirls, dips, and water-like colours of a textural piece of art.
