Steve Driscoll

Steve Driscoll is a modern alchemist. He transforms the base materials of urethane and pigment into ecstatic visions of the Canadian wilderness.

Like his historical forefathers the Group of Seven, Driscoll heads to the forest for inspiration. But rather than re-enacting the plein air sketching method practiced by Canada’s archetypal landscape painters, Driscoll instead mentally banks the images he sees—lakes and trees, sunsets and sunrises, moons and stars, cabins and campfires—creating a storehouse of visual memories that he brings back to his Toronto studio. There he sets about finding ways to make his unorthodox materials suggest those aspects of the wilderness experience that loom large in his mind. Driven by a passion for storytelling, Finn O’Hara takes photos and makes movies that are intimate, situational, and visceral. His strong cinematic approach to storytelling creates work that is visually striking and emotionally engaging. O’Hara describes his photographic methods as a raw and always improving process. He finds inspiration in old movies, rural travel, and everyday happenings. O’Hara was born in London, UK, and moved to Canada as a young lad. After completing a degree in English literature, he travelled the world and now lives in Toronto with his wife and daughter.
