New Directions

Natural Reflections

Rui Sha is an artist with a focus on sculpture and new media. A background as a furniture designer in her native Beijing and an MFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago have influenced her art practice.

Freedom of Imagination

Evolving Experimentations

Toronto-based artist Joan Andal Romano questions public and private domains – what to share with the world and what to keep as hers alone. Vulnerability is at the core of her practice. She reads magazines from back to front and also views people in this way; when her mindset is free and heart is open, strangers become friends and indifference to encompassment.

Perceptive Observations

Layers of Meaning

The works delve into the subconscious – seeing an image through to its resolution.

Exploratory Forms

Milan-based Debora Barnaba originally studied drawing and painting. She later embraced photography, for which she has won numerous awards. Her images express the power of self-portraits, with bodies that are controlled and subverted in favour of the photographic lens.

Artistic Restoratives

Danielle Becknell’s eclectic and diverse practice is driven by personal experiences that become the narrative. The creation of each artwork is a healing gesture – an intuitive expression of physicality shaped by perspectives of nature and unprocessed elements intended to both release and replenish.
