Tessar Lo on Erratic Phenomena

Tessar Lo recently moved back to Toronto but has certainly kept up his evolution as an artist. Our friend Amanda recently covered Lo's change in direction quite eloquently on her blog Erratic Phenomena.

This exploration involves an element of improvisation, which is inherently risky in an art movement wedded to the idea of the unique "brand" or "style," though it is accepted and even lauded at the higher end of the contemporary art market."
