Warren Oneschuck
€œMy work is a dual study of the character of earlier-era vehicles and wooden structures, and nature’s reclamation of these man-made creations. Being from the prairies and having driven similar machines as a kid and having grown up around barns, I’m drawn to the beauty of their shapes and to the colours and textures they have now become a vast range of rusts, browns and warm/cool grays.

€œThe paintings are an exploration of these unique physical shapes and a discovery of techniques to describe what I see. I let the creative process flow from the initial drawing to the layering of colours and the brushwork, my intuition guides my painting process.

Oliver Harwood
€œI am exploring the form of decay, the story that remains as the parts break down.
The unstructured organic response to the constructed: defined phase. It seems we are in a global shift where more is breaking down than renewed. How do we as individuals and a collective respond to this? I have often used the boat as metaphor for society, a constructed functional form, a container, a shell, that exists in a nebulous, often precarious state.
