Luke Ramsey is recognized internationally for his art and design work. This Pender Island artist has been featured in exhibitions from L.A. to Berlin. Luke describes his work as, "Organized chaos- a play with paradoxical themes. The content is influenced by a beautifully strange cosmos of organisms and comedy. The approach needs to feel fluid and not forced." Luke's ink on paper works inspire awe from anyone that sees them. They are finely rendered and visually engaging. The amount of detail and work in each piece will draw the viewer in to find an entire imaginary world in each of his creations.
Sean Yelland is a Toronto based painter whose work plays with a sense of mystery in everyday urban settings. His work has a power to it that plays with a sense of voyeurism and intrigue. By confronting the viewer with scenes that should be full of action but are shown in a state of stillness, he is removing the comfort of the expected, and questioning our relationship to our environment.
