Respond and Reflect
Christy's painting style is defined by bold lines, riots of colour and pattern in an attempt to bring clarity and order to the wild chaos of impressions in her mind that have built up over years of living in different cultural environments.
'I am fascinated by how, when we travel, we look but do not see at first. Over time the new becomes familiar and fresh elements are added to our visual language. My process is exploratory and intensely personal, as I construct and de-construct. I work in acrylic and mixed media.'
Lowden is fascinated by the play between texture, colour, and light, Marlene finds inspiration everywhere but especially in the natural surroundings of the beautiful Sunshine Coast and drawn to abstraction.
"I'm a painter, yogi & at heart, an optimist. My work is about connection; helping people feel connected to their own creativity, to each other, to this planet we share & to themselves because connection creates awareness & understanding.

Dean van't Schip
This show is a selection of Beautiful Sunshine Coast nature images in colour photography. Born and raised on BC's beautiful Sunshine Coast, Dean has been photographing the natural environment for over 30 years. His appreciation for the beauty and biodiversity of this unique area comes through in his high definition medium format transparencies and high resolution digital images.
Dean is a regular contributor to the stock photo agency All Canada Photos and has had images published in publications such as Over Beautiful BC, the Encyclopedia of BC, Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest, Pacific Yachting, Whistler the Magazine and Hasselblad Forum. Tourism BC, the Western Canada Wilderness Committee, the Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society and Harbour Publishing have all used his images in books, magazines, calendars, brochures and cards over the past 20 years.
In his current series of Coastal paintings, Andre Serin focuses on images of undersea creatures and casts them as supernatural beings dripping with luxuriant colour.
Serin's work is built upon a foundation of Painting and Sculpture and often has a tendency to inhabit the liminal space between. It is his interest in blurring the boundaries of medium and material that has led him to explore mixed media installations involving painting, sculpture, video, audio and performance and framing them within recognizable social settings.
