Money & Cumfort

Exploring the perverse nature between decadence and depravity, Lisa Ng’s selected body of paintings titled, “Money & Cumfort” explores the hidden truths amidst a garden of wallpaper flora. On exhibit inside Scarborough’s Cliffcrest library, one can also read a book and stay warm.

*Please note, the start of this exhibition is now on Feb. 7, and not Jan. 31st as previously stated. The revised flyer is posted above.

Here is the painting they have selected:
