The artwork of Illustration Sessional Instructor Fiona Smyth and Jason McLean articulate a liminal state somewhere between good and evil, negative and positive, life and death. Say "Hi" to the Sun is a deliberatley whimsical title that speaks to the distinct character of their body of work. The sun is a symbol of energy and paradoxically, a dangerous entity hanging in the sky. It references a fantastical conversation with worlds existing beyond our own imaginary dreamscapes steeped in reality but are executed with imagination. What we find are records of experience and possible futures. Little histories of the worls in which we share. 

* Reception, Thursday July 27
