West Van Grad Show Part 3
Zora Sauerteig's "Doom" comic book cover was a fun piece. Any art that references the father of microbiology is alright with us. Hopefully Zora will have time while at ECUAD to finish the whole book by her publish date of November 2010. In the meantime we love the certainty of that future exchange rate.
Nikki Koo's spooky "Well" is suitably paired with the "Doom" piece here. Such an effective use of white pencil and those lonely bottles of white-out just lying around in office desks everywhere. Her talent will help her next year while at art school in New York.
There is a faint image of CanadaSchool's crappy photographer marring "Well" plus a reflection of a bit of the piece on the opposite wall. Maybe someone else should take the photos? We have a summer intern position opening up, so send in your CV!
