Toronto-based visual artist Shary Boyle and musician Doug Paisley
formed Dark Hand and Lamplight in the summer of 2006 to go on tour with
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy in California in October, 2006.
For the project Lamplight wrote a collection of new songs which Dark
Hand used as the basis for a new series of artwork. Dark Hand then
created artwork that Lamplight used as the basis for instrumental
compositions and improvisations. This collaborative performance
features Lamplight singing and playing guitar while Dark Hand creates
live drawings and animates pre-drawn images on an overhead projector.
Choreographed to the lyrics and music, Dark Hand projects her artwork
onto a screen, the wall, Lamplight, and other available surfaces. To
