David Gignac - paintings
Starting from a young age, Gignac has been influenced by the works of surrealist Rene' Magritte. Gignac's work echos Magritte's sense of iconography and the notion that every thing has multiple meanings,
translations, layers and mystery. In Magrite's universe everything is more
than it's facade. Sometimes what is simple is just an illusion to cover depth and contradiction. For Gignac the world as a whole operates in similar fashion, which is why he tries to represent it in that spirit in his art. (Click here to see Artist Gallery)
Alicia Lomne - works in glass
Alicia has achieved national recognition as a master of the pate de verre technique. Pate de verre (French, meaning "paste of glass") is an ancient and challenging method of working with glass. Alicia's vessels are beautifully executed in both saturated and muted colors. (Click here to see Artist Gallery)
