"Some years ago, as a way of coming to terms with my ethnicity, I began integrating into my predominantly abstract paintings images from traditional Japanese woodblock prints to illustrate the concept of duality - of being Japanese and Canadian.
Kinston based painter JT Winik seeks to capture the fine balance that binds opposites. A keen observer, her paintings merge beauty and awkwardness, freedom and control, fragility and strength, often evoking a strong emotional sense of discomfort in their portrayal of beauty. Highly regarded, her paintings are shown in Canada and Europe, and featured in magazines, books and book covers, internationally.
My approach to art in general is intuitive and expressionistic. I aspire to the directness of children’s art with the sensibilities of an adult. My medium is mostly car parts and car related patterns.
I believe my interest in people started at a very young age, when I was told to sit still and quiet, which was usually at church or a waiting room. I would be handed a pen and old grocery list or envelope from Mums bag, I would draw other people also waiting.
Bruno Capolongo is an established artist of Neapolitan descent whose work is collected by private and corporate collectors in addition to a growing list of public galleries and museums.
What I experience when I look at Evelyn Rapin’s paintings isn't quite thought or thinking. No. Rapin’s paintings compel associations that skip like a stone across the pond of memory and insist on a response.
Today Capolongo is perhaps best known for his classic still-life paintings featuring elegant oriental pottery, but recently he has also been painting landscapes in oils and acrylics. His patient approach to creating both still lifes and landscapes is a virtue that viewers can observe and savor.
THE HOUSE THE SPIRIT BUILDS: Coinciding with the Kingston WritersFest happening Sept. 25 to 29, Studio 22 is exhibiting a work that blends the visual and the literary arts. THE CONCERT SERIES: Rapin’s The Concert Series was inspired by a concert she attended at The Isabel Bader Centre while sitting in the front row in 2017.
