“Lenaghan imagines an attentive world evolved with homo conscience, and humankind that is more profound in thinking, values the earth more, understands dreams as more significant - individually or collectively. Hyper-detailed, hand-drawn illustration with a recent foray into embroidery. Astounding!” - Justine Kohleal, RBC Curatorial Fellow and Joshua Heuman, Curator of Education and Public Programs at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery 

Francesca Chan (OCAD U), Joshua Heuman (The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery)

"Working in illustration, Chan's work embraces the serene, the humourous and the melancholic. This is real life filtered through the artist's subjectivities." - Justine Kohleal, RBC Curatorial Fellow and Joshua Heuman, Curator of Education and Public Programs at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
