Tanganika Twilight

Nature dominates the canvases of John Seerey-Lester. Because he prefers to paint only those subjects which he has seen firsthand, he travels the world extensively to study wildlife in its natural habitat. It is this essential research that gives Seerey-Lester’s work the atmosphere and authenticity that set his paintings apart and make them so eloquently vital.

Crayons, colored pencils, and paints have always been in her hands, even as a child. As her enthusiasm of oil painting grew, her desire to learn and study intensified. In 1990 Suzie took her first art class. Since then she has continued to sharpen her skills and expand her knowledge through several internationally acclaimed wildlife artists.

Late Summer
by Jonn Einerssen

Jonn Einerssen has studied light as his life’s work since he started to paint at the age of 21.The allure of wide open spaces-where the imagination can wander as far as the eye can see-has been the dominant inspiration for Jonn’s golden prairie landscapes and sunlit seascapes; the subjects and style he has become known for.”Art is not a product of decoration, but a window into some place you have been, or want to go. Rather than limiting your space within the confines of a frame, art should expand your view,” says Einerssen.

Both privately and self-taught, Einerssen has followed a successful, adventurous career as a self-sustaining artist for over three decades, painting and exhibiting across the continent. Jonn spent many years on the west coast and living in The Rockies while establishing a fine arts career. He eventually settled in Kelowna, where his studio and gallery are currently located. Einerssen finds inspiration in his years as a boy living on the prairies; he paints what he remembers seeing on the horizon of his childhood like the grain elevator. His pioneer spirit is kept alive because Jonn is compelled to document his experiences in his ever-popular prairie landscape paintings.

Along the Lightning Strike
By Vance Theoret

Vance Theoret is a man of few words, as are many who work with stone. But when he does get talking it takes little time to feel his passion for the stone that he works with! And of how he communicates with the stone in a manner hard to put into words but nonetheless very tangible. Theoret is of Mohawk/Metis descent and connects with each stone, allowing its ancient memory to speak to him. Using this first impression of what the stone has revealed, he applies a ‘direct carve’ approach, letting the design emerge. This rough image is then refined into a clean, solid sculpture, with precise, yet minimal, detail. “I let the stone tell me what it wants to be. The results are far more exciting than if I forced my ideas on my material.”

While Vance’s work portrays the physical presence of the stone, it also evokes a wide range of emotions – from humor to a sense of tenderness shared between mother and baby – and seems to touch you on a very primal level. The pieces that Theoret carves seem to not only have a life of their own but this method also showcases the real star of the show.The stone itself!
