This exhibition features mystical scenic photography and one of a kind whimsical wood sculptures.
2D – Through his photography, he seeks to express the beauty of the natural world. He attempts to create evocative images that have a sense of mystery and resonate with the energy of light. His mission is to capture the fragile beauty of our environment; to encourage our efforts for its preservation. Water has been Alan’s favorite subject for some time in its many forms: in motion, still, frozen, or appearing in the atmosphere as mist and fog. Light and the medium of photography bring the water to life Often, he uses long exposures to express the sensuality of flowing water, turning waterfalls into cascades of light and rapids into soft mist.
3D – Marco finds great satisfaction in bringing to fruition the visual concepts that inspire him daily through nature, ceramics, fashion, industry, and more. He enjoys a good technical challenge and always strives for excellent craftsmanship. He hopes his creations, whether artistic, functional, or whimsical, bring a smile to your face.
Growing up in Switzerland he had the skill of exactness ingrained in him while apprenticing as a Patternmaker. After moving to Canada, opportunities presented themselves in Woodworking Guilds to enter yearly challenges to construct unique creations out of 2x4x8. Classes with well-known wood turners and competitions in Woodturning Guilds also raised his skill level, and challenged him to create one of a kind artistic turning.
