Emerging Artists showcased at Living Arts

Toronto artist  Darren Rigo’s Peregrine caught my eye for its unusual composition and striking clarity.  It’s part of a new exhibit – Decent Exposure – on now through mid-August at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga. Fresh works by 11 emerging artists are showcased after a call for submissions to students and new graduates.

Rigo’s work covers a wide range of (mostly) outdoor work (Above:  Displacement #21, Blue Tinsel). But he also has an interesting series on transit transfers, all saved from his first days in Toronto, when the city’s labyrinth of buses, streetcars and subways intimidated him.  (Below: Transfer)

Displacement #9 (Red Balloons and Christmas Bulbs)

Displacement #15, Yellow Balloon

Displacement #2 (Rolled Red Crêpe Streamer)

    Well, I appreciate it, but it’s not my favorite. I love the dichotomy of the man-made and the natural and try to take photos of it when I see it, but I guess I prefer it when it is just there. I mean someone has to provide the man-made parts, but this tries too hard to get that jarring quality. Do I make sense? Still fun to look at. 🙂
