Danielle Carignan's artwork is unique, lively and playful; each is also one-of-a-kind, expertly crafted furniture sculptures. Danielle considers each of her furniture sculptures a member of her furniture family. When one of these pieces is taken home, it becomes one's companion, and displaying a personality of its own. One of Danielle's goals is for adults to discover the playfulness and naivete they had once as children.

In a place between sculpture and sketch, work of art and working tool, between artistic aspirations and practical considerations, lies a sometimes small place for an artist. That place comes to mind when an


   

imaginative artist like André St-Cyr creates his furniture sculptures and in turn stumps anyone who tries to classify the work. André builds his furniture sculpture out of paper paste and polymer; at times incorporating wood, rock and glass. His work, a far cry from the purely functional aesthetic of modern design introduces dream and fantasy into our everyday lives.

Both Danielle and André have been shown widely: Danielle has shown her work across North America, including SOFA in Chicago and New York, and extensively in Canada. She has won numerous awards grants including the Prix de la relève - Salon des métiers d'arts du Quebec. André has shown his work in New York and Montreal and has participated in various art and design exhibits.
