Michelle Gauthier is a 26 year old artist and graduate from the Ontario Collage of Art and Design (OCADU) with a bachelor of fine arts in Criticism & Curatorial Practices. She also has a graduate certificate in Culture & Heritage Site Management from Centennial College. She started out as a painter at 13 years old, but has since moved on to work mainly in embroidery. It is because of this change in mediums that she feels very passionately about challenging the notion that works of the ‘fine art’ are more valuable than those of ‘craft’.

Toronto artist Tatjana Hutinec pushes the boundaries of pictorial representation through various approaches of metaphorical self-expression.
“Art is not just a product- an end in itself - it is a start of a process. During the creative process, I pay attention to what emerges from exploring dynamics between self and nature, self and culture, self and ego, viewed through multiple lenses of psychology, philosophy, science... and this dialogue continues between a viewer and the piece of art.”

Rey Saem was born in Iceland in 1956. He studied architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark and graduated in 1988. As a member of the Architect Union, he curated many exhibitions which included architecture and art from 1989 until 1993. Later, he started painting and making sculptures. He moved to Toronto in 2009 and continued painting. His first art show was in September 2017 at Gallery 1313, called Five. This refers to the fact that when he was five years old, he decided to leave my family and move to the moon, build a house on the moon and start fishing for stars.

Creating art started as a hobby for me. I remember at a young age, I drew and painted mostly portraits of family and friends. But, over the years, it faded slowly and I had other things that I got occupied with. I was usually doodling here and there and I always had an active imagination and felt I needed to express myself and my thoughts. So, I found a pen and paper and began drawing my ideas. It was an ideal getaway from the day-to-day working life, and I started creating an archive of thoughts and visions to work on and enhance.
