“Sola began the Vancouver tapestry in May, 2009, and completed it this April after more than 5,000 hours of weaving. Like her other works, it captures in both aerial view and intimate portrayal the architectural elements and spirit of a city at a moment in time; in this case, February, 2010. That each tapestry represents an historical document is ensured by the fastidious attention to detail — every tree, every street, every building (including the correct number of floors and windows) and every colour are astoundingly accurate, no small feat when working at this scale.”
– Leslie Anthony
