Martin Hayward-Harris GB

"FLYING FALCON" (Wood)

My overriding passion is form.Working in all media to create art that has fluidity and purity of line. I am fascinated by primitive visceral interpretations of the natural world and man’s relationship with nature in the modern day. My influences from ancient civilization have led me to abstract and invent new ideas that include the viewer on subjects of vulnerability, freedom and relationships. Through new discoveries of artistic methods, I have begun working in materials such as copper and...

Karel Doruyter CA

"Passage" (Acrylic)

Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and facinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that adds to the attraction.

"Bam Bam" (Oil)

I'm a portrait artist, working to capture the individual and find his or her story.  By setting ourselves so far apart from other animals, we lose our connection to them and the rest of the planet in the process.

Laura Levitsky CA

"Morning's Song" (Acrylic)

Art is where I go to explore and express.  I get lost in it.  It is the only thing I seem to have an infinite patience for as I can sit for hours and meticulously paint every hair of lichen growing on a tree. For me, it is important to include the smallest of pixie-up lichen or the damselfly resting on a blade of grass as I feel it assists in capturing the whole story and hopefully exposes it to the viewer as an important part of the whole picture, not just in the painting, but in nature itself...
