From Moco Art:
Vicki DaSilva uses tube lamps to create photography based on light graffiti. DaSilva uses this medium to create site-specific installations loaded with socio-political commentary. The single frame time exposure light paintings are made by moving the lamps either by hand or along tracks to create fields of light. Her current show of work, Reverb, features photos based in an abandoned silk factory. The photo above is in reference to the Chinese artist/activist, the pale yellow a nod to the Jasmine Revolution.

Montreal painter Claire Desjardins has recently turned her hand to bold, colourful abstracts works that are a clear departure from her previous softer, more figurative pieces. These new series, full of vibrant movement, are an expression of the artist’s long-standing relationship with colour. Desjardins uses her palette in such a way as to render her works almost tactile invitations to an exploration of the spectrum.
