Kintsugi, also known as kintsukuroi, has become a powerful emblem, not for brokenness, but for wholeness despite the shockwaves in life. It is not about finding beauty in chaos or tragedy, it is a symbol - like the cross is to Christians - of faith and perseverance, of the belief that victory, success and wholeness are often realized through the challenges of life, if we rise to those challenges.

Highly regarded, her paintings are shown in Canada and Europe, and featured in magazines, books and book covers, internationally.

His gifted use of colour captures the uniqueness of light on the landscape and ignites the imagination in reminiscence.
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.
