The Illuminations Project is a decade-long collaboration between two artists, feminists and friends. Shary Boyle and Emily Vey Duke’s visionary call-and-response forges connections between subversion and joy, drawing and writing. It is an exquisitely rendered road map through the chaos of growing up female, fearless and hungry for meaning. The Illuminations Project was published by Oakville Galleries.

Shary Boyle is an artist from Toronto who works in drawing, painting, sculpture, and performance. Boyle represented Canada with her project Music for Silence at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.

Emily Vey Duke is an artist and writer who works mostly in collaboration with her partner Cooper Battersby. They live in the countryside in New York with their six cats and two prairie dogs. She is an Associate Professor in the Transmedia Department at Syracuse University.

Foreword by acting curator Jon Davies.
Published by Oakville Galleries, 2015.
