Laura Findlay is born in Montreal and is currently a Toronto-based artist who makes paintings and installations that examine understanding events through fragmentary information. She completed her MFA at the University of Guelph in 2014.
Xan Shian is a multidisciplinary artist, photographer, and writer living in Montreal. Her work seeks to bridge the chasm between photography and poetry, while navigating tropic tensions through material, personal and interpersonal relationships. Drawing on rhetorical theory, philosophy, and literature she filters her work through the lens of lived experience, both that of her own and of others. She has a BA in Communication Studies from Concordia University (2012), and is currently finishing a BFA in Studio Arts, Photography, also at Concordia University.
