Keight MacLean is a Toronto based painter, originally from the Kingston region, an alumna of OCAD University and the school’s prestigious Florence Program. Intrigued by our connection to the distant past and the historical treatment of women, MacLean’s work combines elements of Baroque and Renaissance painting with modern and experimental techniques.
LOST PORTRAITS, her latest body of work, features MacLean’s traditionally inspired portraits, presented with a contemporary twist, such as fluorescent spray paint, re-harvested artists’ mediums and destructive techniques.
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.
“As a visual artist, I often explore themes of isolation, introspection and the fusion of contrary states of being.”
Working in a variety of forms, from painting and graphic arts to humorist drawing, Osvaldo González Herrera studied art in his native Cuba. In 2013, Herrera relocated to Montreal, where he continues to work as a painter and graphic artist. His work has been shown in several solo and collective exhibitions, both in Cuba and internationally.
Her paintings speak to the beauty and abstract rhythms of life—in them she captures the artistry of the everyday, as she sees it.
All it takes is the subtlest hint of a horizon line for our minds to see landscape in an abstract painting. We’re drawn to wide-open spaces and expansive views, and landscape paintings connect us to these places. The concept of abstract landscape allows me incredible artistic freedom and yet grounds the work in visual experience. – Debra Krakow

Ewa Scheer, based out of Montreal, is an artist of unique vision. In her ice project, Scheer applies non-toxic pigments on natural ice formed in the forest; her paintings exist for as little as two seconds and as long as two weeks. The work is then photographed, set behind thick plexiglass which mirrors ice, allowing her to preserve these transient images and capture the moment of interaction between creator and Creation.
