Not really a big fan of photography, I find every year the month of May extremely boring in Toronto, with most galleries here showing exclusively photography. It is a real challenge to seek out inspiring shows. I was at the YYZ this Saturday, surprised to see Lauren Hall's latest exhibition Sail Fast Cloud-Shadows and Sunbeams there. I have been following Hall since I first saw her sculptural installations in 2009. I love her geometric treatments of natural landscapes and her use of synthetically made packaging and building materials.
