Project Description

The Toronto Transit Commission awarded the design of integrated artworks at Chester Subway to the artist in 2016. Her concept Florae is inspired by the native plants and flowers that define the east-end neighbourhoods surrounding the station. Mosaika of Montreal studio is translating Harvey’s collages of milkweed, verbena, trout lily, and blue flag iris into magical, double-exposed ceramic and glass mosaics. A digital print of this imagery over the central entrance doors will complement the mosaics. Fabrication is underway and the artworks will be installed later in 2020.
