Rowan Dinsmore

Rowen Dinsmore is a conceptual artist who works in painting, screen printing, clay and media installations that are reflective of herself and her interest in ways of seeing. Influenced by social media and art history, Dinsmore studies what it means to be a woman in the modern era through an artistic lens, often approaching topics of spectatorship and the gaze, and the feminine form; critiquing while also embracing these aspects of the female experience in a post-internet world. The artist approaches her mediums and turns them into colourful reflections of herself; each work being a conceptual or representational self-portrait. 

Dinsmore's work often features multiple versions of herself, overlapped, intertwined or shadowed; her compositions hope to confront the viewer with many layers of meaning.

Fawn De Nysschen

Fawn De Nysschen is an emerging fine-art designer, impressionist painter and overall creative motivator who was born in South Africa and was raised in the rural prairies of Canada in Cabri, Saskatchewan. In 2017 she received her Bachelor of Applied Arts in Visual Communication at Medicine Hat College and now works as a full time fine artist & designer in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. 

Fawn chooses to explore creation through painted prairie and travelled landscape themes that correspond with ideas of the human condition in every state. She is constantly reaching for a feeling of intimacy while breaching a wide audience through her landscapes that blur the line between abstract & impressionism. Fawn finds that the best way for her to translate her own existence with a sense of presence is by capturing the land and how we as a society choose to cherish, conserve, commission, and cultivate it to be what matters. She believes that ultimately this care and consciousness is what brings us all together.

His highly detailed, three-dimensional ink collages position the viewer between a telescopic and microscopic lens; situating them with a relationship to scale. By using colour, texture and form as their own visual language, Jordan's interest in the subconscious and psychological observations of the self, encourage the viewer to see what they see within the work.
