Jason McLean’s diverse practice includes sculpture, sound-works, zines, book-works, mixed-media installations, correspondence art, puppets and performance but he is probably best known for his diaristic mapping and surreal drawings. His mom’s Elvis scrapbook and dad’s homemade car ads are what introduced McLean to art. Now John Candy, Harry Smith, Andy Kaufman and non-alcoholic beer, are among the inspirations fueling his daily observations and relationships with local environments.  Jason McLean currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and is represented by Michael Gibson Gallery in London, Canada and Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles, USA.

Don Krauskopf has a profound interest in the history of Ontario, particularly the development of transportation networks. His style is at once whimsical and representational, exploring and rendering large architecture structures within natural settings – railway bridges, roads, harbours – and the pleasant aspects of history that happened on, at or near them. He experiments with different types of paint and researches his subject matter, dealing with a convergence of the man-made with the natural.
