Klyment Tan

Klyment Tan is an artist, photographer and motion picture camera operator who also works as an imaging consultant, specializing in technically challenging projects. He graduated from the University of Alberta, and is based in Edmonton, although his highly regarded commercial work takes him around the world. His creative practice combines his interests in aesthetics, technologies and processes. Some of his recent projects include Cloud Buildings – Urban Landscape, light-boxes that explore the symbiotic coexistence of natural and man-made environments, and Quasiparticle Interferometer, a set of images riffing on quantum experimentation, with two-dimensional "particles" interacting with their framing materials. 

Monica Tap

In her work, Monica Tap uses landscape to consider questions of time and history, technology and memory. Her paintings are arrangements assembled from various fragments: outtakes from painting’s history, elements from her own snapshots, colour notes, memory. Each painting is both an invention and a response to place that she knows and has recorded. She is interested in how location or landscape can trigger memory; akin to how painting readily conjures its own past. This history reveals how aesthetics, among other factors, have operated to tame nature into landscape, and the artifice and assumptions underlying this error.


Tap’s work has been exhibited at The Painting Center (NYC), the Canadian Embassy (Washington, D.C.), Boston Cyberarts Gallery, Dispari & Dispari Projects (Italy) , Oakville Galleries (ON),), Dalhousie Art Gallery (Halifax), London Regional Art and Historical Museum (London, ON), and  Margaret Thatcher Projects (NYC). Her works are included in many private and public collections including Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (NYC, Berlin), Canada House, (London, UK), Bank of Montréal, TELUS, Royal Bank of Canada, Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts, ESSO Imperial Oil Canada , CIBC Mellon, University of Toronto, and the Würth Collection (Germany). She studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and is based in Toronto.


Jill Thomson

Jill Thomson's artwork evokes her personal history of a small town/prairie childhood, an urban Montreal young adulthood and a settled life as artist and mother of three in Edmonton. Her rich colourful palette and complex compositions celebrate a creative life in cities with generous front porches, cafes, bookstores, bicycle paths, gardens and ravines. She received her BFA from Concordia University in Montreal. She is represented by Gibson Fine Art in Calgary and AGA Art Rental and Sales in Edmonton. Thomson’s neighbourhood painting for Premier Rachel Notley depicts the Legislature from a Strathcona neighbourhood perspective, and hangs in the Premier’s Office in the Alberta Legislature. Nine of her paintings are featured in a permanent alleyway mural for the Alberta Ave Alley Project, as part of the revitalization of Alberta Avenue. She has work in Edmonton City Hall, The Alberta Foundation for the Arts and in international public and private collections.
