Silent Disparities is an exhibition that will be held at the Deer Lake Art Gallery featuring the works of Sara Khan and Tom Douglas. Silent Disparities is hosted and organized by the Burnaby Arts Council.  The Exhibition will open on August 10th and will run until September 2nd, 2017.


Khan was born in Birmingham, England in 1984 and raised in Lahore, Pakistan.  She inhabits the idea of seeing the real or the memory of it but consciously realizing it in paint from a different perspective. Reality is reduced to a 2 dimensional surface. A narrative develops between viewer and canvas. Her scapes have a very modernist feel with structures in colour presented in minimalist manner. Her work has been exhibited internationally. Khan lives in Vancouver.


Douglas, an award winning artist and poet, describes himself as a self-taught artist, although he attended The University of Alberta in the Faculty of Art Education early on. His expressionist work is an unrelenting series of brushstrokes that almost bruise the canvas with colour and form. His work is said to oscillate between specific and ambiguous imagery, from erratic forms to intimate contact. His strong & dramatic abstract works are unconscious memory retrieval expressed in paint. His work is prolific and seems to have exploded as a result of taking a hiatus from professional painting. Douglas resides in Surrey
