From Prince George, Robert Dyson is a sculptor and photographer who also works in the world of theatre, fabricating sets and props. His new work draws upon theatre-craft as he produces hybrids of painting and low relief sculpture that communicate pressure and tension. Elements within the frame, and at times the frames themselves, appear to be compressed or pulled apart using pulleys, clamps and other devices. Using trompe l’oeil and other effects, Dyson’s work appears to be heavily sprung and on the verge of letting go.

Québec City painter, Dan Brault, is a self-professed cynic. Rather than kick at a withering raft of global concerns, in his paintings, however, Brault ejects them entirely from his work. Issues like climate change and environmental decline, are more than simply absent in his paintings. He carefully composes his work to counter the anxiety and malcontent these and other concerns cause. Using a range of painting techniques and media he fashions paintings that, while auto-biographical, draw from common experiences in the world around him. Fishing, camping and video games are among the subject matter that Brault tackles lending his work a wide-ranging resonance as he creates paintings that are uplifting antidotes to these troubled times.
