Annalee Kornelsen has been a devoted artist her whole life. Self directed from a very early age, she is driven by a love of movement, expression and visible emotion, to create works of art that strike directly at the heart and go beyond what can be described by words alone.
She works primarily in acrylics and and line drawings and explores this theme through use of abstract shapes and colour in contrast with greyscale portraiture.
Dave Laslo is a Vancouver based artist that paints, draws, and sculpts detailed characters and artifacts from a hallucinatory world.
David is an artist who plays with the ideas of permanence and temporality. His recent work connects the gestures and emotion and how a place can dictate our unknown future. Raised homeschooled “in the sticks” and now in a town of 250 people has secluded David to his own devices. This identity has moulded his state of being and inevitably propelled him into imaginative and instinctual illustrations that are telling of his rural reality.
