I don’t consciously pick a style of artist and yet when all the pieces come together an overall feeling emerges. I am more visceral in my choices and I trust my instincts—I also find that if you expose yourself to great art enough it helps develop your eye and you can better judge when a piece holds up. 
My Selection:
Ron Eady, Papoose, 2014, at AREA Gallery 
There is a haunting aspect to Ron's work—very painterly.
I love graphic black and white paintings. 
Interesting use of mixed media. 
Jean-Paul Riopelle, Le Chant de l'Alouette, 1955, at Canadian Fine Arts
Powerful abstract expressionist painter. Love the use of colour and application of the paint in a sculptural way. Lots of energy—great Canadian artist. 
Robert Taite, 30.5" x 29.5"-5.5" x 7", 4" x 11", 2014, at Actual
Sculptural painting—I like that it is dimensional. 
Marcel Dzama, Untitled (Trees), circa. 1999, at Galerie BAC
I like the humour in Marcel Dzama’s work.
