My art is comprised primarily of painting, with some cross-training in both collage and graphics. A previous design career strongly informs my artistic practice: text and typography, structure, colour, hierarchy. I am particularly enamoured with the bold, direct language and visuals of advertising, signage, graffiti and memes — and, whether written myself or appropriated and re-contextualized, I love exploring the interplay of messages with their visual expression.

Themes of current interest are creativity and freedom and impediments to same: both internal, including blocks, depression and limiting beliefs – and external, such as rules, restrictions and societal expectations.

I am keen to further explore various messages, modes and degrees of communication… and with luck, do it with some wit, beauty and insight — not to mention a metric tonne of visual impact. Website www.kalhoney.ca

This microcosmic landscape contains invasive plants that have overtaken the native ecosystem of Toronto/Tkaronto. A whirlwind of ghost butterflies fills this habitat, created around the remains of a Monarch butterfly found on the grille of a car on a city street. It suggests that butterfly migration in a changed environment is a narrative of displacement and loss.

Vivian Wong is a Toronto-based artist, arts educator and workshop facilitator. In her public art practice, she focuses on process and engagement through participatory art, using sustainable and upcycled materials and a mix of found and natural objects. Vivian has animated spaces like Nuit Blanche Toronto, Evergreen Brick Works, and the Gardiner Museum with interactive and ephemeral installations and community art.
