I am passionate about the urban environment. The city, the architecture. I reveal in this urbanity its figurative aspect. I transform urban landscapes into graphic and colourful contemporary photographs. Colour and light are at the centre of everything. I travel to cities all over the world where I hand-pick cityscapes that I shoot and scenography at different moments of the day to create a unique piece of art where the color light is at work to create a surrealistic esthetic as if painted on canvas.

Joon Hee Kim . Canada

An award-winning ceramist who was an art director in her native South Korea, she came to Canada and took patisserie studies at Le Cordon Bleu in Ottawa. But she switched careers, graduating from Sheridan College, where it led her to become intrigued with ceramics. As the Cecil Lewis Sculpture Scholarship recipient, She completed a Masters in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts in the UK. Her compelling ceramic works have been exhibited in the USA, UK, and a solo exhibition at the Clay and Glass gallery. She examines her heritage through the lenses of multiple influences as she travels to both national and international artistic residencies.

With a BA in Fashion design, Tarn enjoyed a successful and creative career in the fashion industry but returned to her love of painting with commitment and gratitude. Within her abstract painting, she expresses emotions through bold colour and movement. Tarn is Constantly inspired by light. She is fascinated by the way it creates movement, shape and mood in the world around us and this is evident in her work as a painter and photographer. The coming year looks exciting with a new series of Abstract works to include her photography. Her works are collected and enjoyed by people around the world.
