For BRUCE HOWE, the quest through the art of photography is to capture the enchantment in nature and especially the intriguing aspects of light and lighting in general, like night-time photography and the play of light at dusk or dawn. Also interested in portrait photography, which he finds challenging yet rewarding at the same time, HOWE's aim is to help people see the unusual in the usual.
Quoting ROLLAND E. PROULX himself, "Self-transformation is a turn on." He chose the path of Beauty, striving to communicate the inherent mystery of the living fire breathing in and through all things. PROULX's art is an expression, a vision materialized, where past, present and future are synthesized harmoniously and crystallized into a living magnet. His imagery, rich in esoteric meaning and beauty, is a visual feast of whirling symbols and eclectic mythologies. His creations are at once iconographic, spiritual and timeless, a celebration of the unusual that reveals the alchemist visionary at work.
Ontarian photographer BRUCE HOWE is an Electronic Engineering Technician by profession with working experience for top-level companies like Nissan, Chrysler, GM and Siemens both in Canada and the US. On a trip to Australia he became infatuated with photography and realized that he wanted to explore this exciting creative path, which in turn got him to study photography at George Brown College in 2009.
Artist, designer and author ROLLAND E. PROULX is an autodidact, prolific creator who demonstrates excellence in all his creative quests, pouring his unique formation into his passionate and original approach to creativity. PROULX is the recipient of several art grants and design awards, and published his first book, The Electric Oracle Speaks (Wisdom Now and Forever) in 2004.
