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)
