Born in 1983, Danny is a Lethbridge born photographer with an innate fascination of the natural world. Driven by his love of astronomy, Danny often seeks inspiration beneath the night sky. Danny’s artistic expression is deep-rooted in the aesthetics of surrealism; captivated by what dwells in the darkness rather than in the light, his experimental approach helps him expose surreal qualities in the real world. Using only available light for the bulk of his work, Danny enjoys the challenge of transforming ordinary landscapes into dramatic displays of nature’s brilliance.
Growing up, Leanna often wished she had a talent for painting - but what she saw in her head never seemed to translate onto paper. She longed to be able to capture the ethereal light of an impressionist painting or the emotive impact of an abstract.
Photography has provided a vehicle for her to express her lifelong love of art and to interpret the world around her in the way that she always wished to. Each image is a possibility and a revelation. Each has its own voice. She hopes they speak to you.
"My work is elemental, with a focus on nature and the forces with which humanity has to contend. I search for a distinctive atmosphere from the immensity and grandeur of the plains to the human mark etched upon it. I explore and delineate the relationship between the musical rhythms and melodies of our sky and landscape and the painterly palette of expressive swirls and light shifts of human song. One seamlessly informing the other. With both a plaintive and expressive palette of light and movement I draw both from my past, a process I call "Memory Polaroids", and from the present day of all that surrounds me. My medium is oil on canvas."
Steve Coffey has been an integral part of the Canadian art and music scene for many years. He has curated traveling exhibitions, created large-scale public sculptures, taught college, and conducted many workshops and art residencies. His far-flung travels have taken him to places such as London, England and he has exhibited in Poznan City, Poland. Of the art in these major centers (along with favorites Berlin and Amsterdam), he speaks of being “visually exhausted and spiritually inspired” and he recalls the longing to return to the “intricate nuances and swirling beauty” of the Canadian landscape. He notes such influences as The Group Of Seven, Emily Carr and Alex Colville to name a few.
After finishing his formal training in 1990 (University of Regina, Master of Fine Arts.) Steve practiced formalism as a metal sculptor in Edmonton & Central Alberta. Eventually he gave in to his love of drawing and representation and was seduced by the immediacy and challenges of oil paint. He began exploring the medium full time in 1995.
Steve has exhibited extensively and his paintings can be found in numerous private and public collections throughout North America, Europe & Asia.
He is also a well-known western Canadian singer-songwriter with a number of recordings that have received critical acclaim. He and his band "The Lokels" perform regularly and can be heard on the radio airwaves from commercial to college to frequencies in between. He has also dabbled in films, one of which was purchased by the arts and entertainment channel Bravo in 2007.
Steve makes his home in Vulcan, Alberta with his partner Barbara and their two daughters Lydia and Grace.
