Susan Dobson @ Art Toronto

From Susan Dobson’s 2020 “Focusfinder” series, these new photographs combine scans of digital viewfinders with her meditative images of the Great Lakes. They are visual reminders of our natural world and symbolize a longing for looking and restfulness.

Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline

Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline moved to deep in the Manitoba woods this summer and planned on painting a suite of plein-air landscape paintings. What he encountered were bugs, rain and a psychological challenge that he did not anticipate. The paintings that we have for Art Toronto are gritty, yet beautiful.

Hans Wendt @ Art Toronto

Video featuring new watercolours by PEI artist Hans Wendt featured in our Art Toronto 2020 booth. Hans Wendt uses as his source material the paper colour swatches that art students use to study colour theory. He creates intricate compositions with the samples, lights them dramatically and then paints large-scale watercolours in a photo-realistic manner.

Michael Snow @ Art Toronto
