Nadia Lassman is an international artist with showings in Toronto, New York, Miami and Scottsdale,  and has appeared in Vogue, House & Garden, House of Coco and World of Interiors magazines.

 

Lassman's landscapes are imbued with luminosity and warm, radiating contentment. Influenced by the Impressionists, Lassman's work reflects the happiness she feels, the beauty of nature and her joy in travelling.  It is said one can feel at peace when viewing her works. She is particularly fond of water scenes, keeping her viewers fascinated by the contrasting warm and cool tones that nature generously shares. Lassman also explores the complexity of man-made structures along with the interplay of light and reflection on water.

 

Her contemporary take on Impressionism is created by adding depth and interest to her romantic pieces with tactile, textured effects, which she achieves through the application of layers of pigments along with sand and gels.

David often finds himself lost while trying to navigate a route towards a destination. He frequently drives through the everchanging fields in Southern Ontario. He takes photos along the way and then uses these images to produce his paintings. With a multi-layered technique, he applies thick swaths of oil paint, creating a translation of these moments.
