Ethan Logan is a North American multi-media artist currently working with reclaimed industrial objects, trashed electronics, and natural elements to create sculptures and installations. By using these ‘waste’ materials, Ethan forms a new purpose within each work produced. He questions the morals of mankind, the inert versus the living, and the roles they play in our environment. Ethan’s interest stems from the various outcomes and prophecies of apocalyptic tales. He opens the door to a fictional narrative, allowing the audience to connect and build their own interpretation of the works.

McNicol works within a hybrid practice with a focus on installation. She works by examining everyday occurrences and objects, and believes that to look and see are driven by vastly different motives. She considers that to look is merely to glance in a specified direction – but to see is to be engaged and to understand.
