Enzo Sarto Cannot Be Stopped
There is an inherent shock value when viewing the work of Enzo Sarto. Executed in a clean and crisp manner, Sarto’s photographs highlight a deceptive innocence that demands attention. Although stating that his work “is about passions, prejudices, and fear,” a specific clarification, such as why a little girl wears a bandana around her face like a vandal and holds a gun as if she just committed murder, remains elusive. Politically and socially charged images infiltrate much of Sarto’s work, producing a dialogue that begs for an explanation.
La Chambre Design
When exploring some of Montreal's best bars and restaurants, you have probably come across the work of interior designer, Amlyne Phillips, founder of La Chambre Design. Her classic style, found in Apt200, Suwu, L'Gros Luxe, the newly opened Jatoba as well as others, is a fusion of charming antiques with modern trends that creates an ambiance that is as cozy as it is hip. Not to mention, she often incorporate the work of Station 16 Gallery, contributing an eclectic edge into her designs.
