Jan. 11, 2021 : I am excited to share that I am participating in two group exhibitions with Hashimoto Contemporary this winter. The first, Lush II, will open at their NYC location Feb. 5; the second, Potluck, opens in Los Angeles on Feb. 12. Also this February I will have work at the Assembly Gallery in Hamilton for Lost In The Supermarket, the exact date will be determined by covid lockdown measures.
Feb. 22, 2021 : I recently had the opportunity to zoom down and chat with the CBC Arts section about table tops, portraiture, magic, the collective uncertainty we find ourselves in right now, and the things the objects we keep say about ourselves. You can read it here.
Jan 7, 2021 : I have an upcoming exhibition with Mark Christopher Gallery in Toronto opening this coming May 2021. Over the last fifteen months or so, but especially since the beginning of Covid-19, I have been painting around the ideas of radical self-acceptance versus the constant pressure to improve yourself. Its been fun!
Dec. 8, 2020 : I have recently been awarded a 2020 Visual Artists Support Fund Grant from the Toronto Arts Council. This grant money will support a research project culminating in some paintings and a small artists book centred around the history of psychics in Toronto. The project is very much in its nascent stages, but I am starting off with a look at the demographics and history of what brought the booming psychic industry and sub-culture to Toronto. I have always been interested in art as anthropology, so this will dovetail nicely as well as be a an opportunity to get a little outside of my wheelhouse.
