Lisa Geddes: “I am a mixed media painter currently working with acrylic paint. I enjoy the flexibility available with the medium. Opacity and transparency, layering, textured grounds, mark making, photo transfer and collaging are things I am exploring with acrylics.”
“The natural landscape is a powerful source of inspiration for my work. Living in Whistler surrounded by incredible beauty and changing seasons provides an endless amount of material to work from. My main focus is to interpret my surroundings in an expressive rather than purely representational way. I am increasingly drawn to abstraction and interpretive expression as a means to illustrate my experience of the landscape physically, viscerally and metaphorically. I am most interested in expressing this experience of place or state of mind and hope that the viewer has a visceral reaction to my paintings as well as a visual one.”
David Mccolm: Again this year, I will continue to photograph Whistler’s stunning and ever changing landscapes, it’s unique and amazing people as well as some of its outstanding events. I know how fortunate I am to live in and be surrounded by such a limitless wealth of photographic opportunities, so you will notice that my photography is very much Whistler-oriented.
At the same time, I also enjoy “getting out” and experiencing other people, places and events. One sport that I love to photograph (and, all too infrequently, DO!) are triathlons. Accordingly, I will continue to photograph a number of triathlons such as Ironman Canada (in Whistler) and, as often as I’m able to make it to the Big Island, the “original” Ironman – the World Championship in Kona.
