KARA McINTOSH is a contemporary Canadian painter whose exploration of the landscape is grounded in a curiosity around how we experience place. Through a process of immersion, observation and response to the natural world and rural communities, Kara’s work investigates themes of connection - physical, emotional, economic, social and cultural.
Rendered in both loose impasto and careful marks, Kara’s work captures a considered essence of place. Her strong, assured brushwork presents specific sites, but encourages the viewer to engage and reflect on their own experiences. With bright and often unexpected colours peeking through the natural compositions, Kara’s work offers a refreshing and engaging take on traditional landscape subject matter.
Kara lives near Nottawa, ON with her husband and three children. She works full-time from her studio in Collingwood. Her work can be found in many private collections in Canada, the US, Europe and Australia.
JOHANNA REYNOLDS has poured her creative energies into various artistic and curatorial endeavours for more than twenty years. Her focus has now fully turned to her own painting practice. She is ever infatuated with natural shapes and elements from our world, aiming to create abstracted yet familiar themes for viewers to engage with.
In December 2018, Air Canada purchased four large works for their permanent collection. These pieces, in a series called Passages, are installed along the feature wall in the newly redesigned Maple Leaf members lounge at LaGuardia airport in New York. Johanna is gearing up for an exciting 2020 year with a springtime feature in an upcoming Sarah Richardson Design book entitled, Collected.
Johanna studied Art History and Studio Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. She works and lives in her hometown of Toronto with her husband and two children. Her work is in private and corporate collections across North America and Europe.
