March – September 2024
Evergreen Cultural Centre Lobby Windows

Vancouver-based artist Silas Ng has been fascinated with classical music since childhood. He explores movement, vibration and the visual experience of music through his series Music in My Eyes (2020). Working from his experience as a Deaf artist, Ng photographs performances of quick, energetic gestures and the long draw of the bow across the strings to demonstrate how “volume can be shown through action.”

Silas Ng is a multidisciplinary artist who explores identity, language and sound through images. His work involves photography and other mediums including drawing, painting and sculpture. He combines these mediums to express his perspective of multiculturalism and communication as a Deaf Chinese Canadian person. Ng reinterprets and transforms his experiences and relationships with his many cultures through images to break the invisible boundaries of language. Ng studied photography at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, and is a recent MFA graduate from the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.

The magic of the forest comes to life in Sarah Anne Johnson’s artwork Woodland (2020–)a series of eight whimsical and psychedelic photographs that traces the four seasons across Lafarge Lake–Douglas SkyTrain Station. In these works, the artist portrays what she calls the “healing power of the forest” through a kaleidoscope of colours. Her colour prisms bring to light unseen dimensions found within nature.

Johnsons work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally, including at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and Confederation Centre of the Arts, Charlottetown, PEI.

Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Vancouver Art Gallery. Johnson is represented by Yossi Milo Gallery, New York; Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto; and Division Gallery, Montreal.
