Brian started oil painting on canvas in 1994 with a southwestern flare as a form of relaxation and hobby.
Since that time he has focused on more variety and has branched into abstracts using oil and beeswax as a medium. He also continues with his southwestern style.
Brian Burness is a self-taught oil medium artist born and raised in Estevan, Sask. He moved to Alberta in 1972 to work in the oil and gas industry where he is still employed as a marketing consultant for oil service companies in Calgary, Alta.
||Having spent the formative years involved with horses on many levels, this in turn has evolved into the ability as an artist, to capture her subject matter as it appears in reality. Infinite moments of real life experiences are seized in her own unique interpretation using primary acrylics, oil and graphite. Brush mileage and continuously honing her skills and techniques contribute to the ongoing passion of striving always to reach new and greater heights of professional achievement. Furthermore, the study of reality and subject matter lends itself to the structure, depth and detail found in her pieces. The great appreciation she has for her subject matter is evident in each of her carefully rendered pieces. Having had the opportunity to spend time with some of the top artists of today, also contributes to the body of work she is now creating.|
Frances Ann Low
||Frances Ann considers her pieces visual parables for our time. Her art draws on the sacred stories of several spiritual traditions and interweaves them like threads into the tapestry of the One Truth. Frances Ann is interested in capturing those moments when our human spirit reaches up to Heaven and Heaven bends down to touch the earth. She invites us to go to the thin places that our First Nations people know so well. Her work draws the viewer into a contemplative space. The American Southwest calls to Frances Ann in a special way. It is a place of breathtaking colour and stark shapes. The sprawling adobe, craggy ridges, brilliant blues, circling eagles, jumping trout and fast flowing river of the monastery at Pecos, New Mexico have been calling this artist all of her life. It is a place steeped in Pueblo history and monastic stillness and both of these have served as inspiration for her art.|
