Ryan Sobkovich is an accomplished young phenom from Wasaga Beach, ON. Scouted and nurtured from a young age, Ryan has been professionally exhibiting in galleries since he was sixteen. Aware of the importance of education, Ryan consciously took the time to advance his education and graduated from Georgian College, School of Design and Visual Arts in 2016 with Honours in the Advanced Fine Art Program. Now at twenty-seven he is already a veteran and one to collect in Canadian art.
Ryan's love of nature inspires him to paint wilderness scenes of Canada while hiking, camping and kayaking around the great lakes and other areas across the country. He utilizes dynamic, impasto brushwork and layered complementary colours to convey emotions, feelings and thoughts while on site in the wilderness. Ryan particularly enjoys painting 'en plein air' and painting in large scale. His works are collected by private, corporate and public collectors nationally and internationally.
Coffey's latest oeuvre is a vibrant continuation of his exploration of Canada's diverse landscapes. Works such as Breeze, Harvest Dance,andCat Tails (Tales), delve into the artist's intimate relationship with the plains and skies, narrating the untold stories of the land. His immersive style captures more than the essence of each scene; it brings to life the unique story embedded in every brushstroke.
Cairns' new series is a masterful continuation of her exploration into the heart of Canada's coastal landscapes. Pieces such as "Shoreline XI," "Refuge Cove I," "Intertidal II," and "Mansons Lagoon XV" represent a deep dive into the artist's intimate relationship with the sea and shore. Cairns captures the essence of each location's unique story through her distinct, immersive style.
