If you had to pick just one theme explored by Toronto-based artist Daryl Vocat, it would have to be the Boy Scout. Vocat incorporates vintage illustrations of scouts from old manuals into his extremely contemporary screen prints, empowering the boys in uniform to behave badly, or perhaps more true to themselves. Vocat’s recent installation, The Secret of the Midnight Shadow, is a life-sized pop-up book that takes over the gallery to reveal notions that lurk in the night. The dark of the woods gives rise to the abandonment of convention, making way for the invitation into the imagination.
