I went to the Junction Arts Festival yesterday and saw Lisa Ng's paintings in the Academy of Realist Art. She won second prize in the juried exhibition, but her work was my favourite. She creates these mini worlds where bizarre things are happening, such as one painting where a guy on the subway is literally coughing up a lung and everyone is cowering behind him, including some vermin. Her website is also worth checking out. I especially like the "cannibalism" section, which reinterprets common food items as human body parts, but somehow manages to be more quirky than actually disturbing.
