"Eat Your Art Out"

I haven't updated my blog in a while, but within the next few months I plan on posting more frequently. I have been working on my thesis this year at OCADU and doing an internship at Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, on Queen St West since September.

In December Propeller had an edible art event, called "Eat You Art Out." Artists were asked to submit a piece of art, constructed of edible material, which would then be eaten at the event.

I submitted a piece for it, made of fondant.

More pictures from the show:

Art Show/ Rock Show opening night photos

Here are some photos from the show at the Grad Club Art Show/ Rock Show opening on September 25,2010. Alex Leggett and the Flood, Superhero Smith and the Smidgens all put on amazing performances. And as I said before, having a show with my boyfriend Alex was a great experience. I hope to have another show with him in the future. The night was a huge success. There was a great turnout and outstanding encouragement and support from the guests. Thank you to everyone who made it out! My work will be on display at the Grad Club until December.

One of my New Favourite Artists

One of my friends showed me the artist Kate MacDowell.
I have never felt so moved before. Her work is extremely inspiring!
It relates to the kind of work that I have been doing, and she uses the same kind of imagery that I use in my work.
I can't wait to work in the studio tomorrow!

I went to many great art shows in Toronto this weekend....
The Whole Ball of Wax at Propeller,
Red Carpet at Drabinsky Gallery,
Bloodletting at Le Gallery,
Faces of the City at Show & Tell Gallery
and Sacrifices for the Sanguinary Age at Meta Gallery.

Today there was an artist talk by the artist Vincent Castiglia at Meta Gallery. His show Sacrifices for the Sanguinary Age was breathtaking! He was an amazing artist, speaker, and writer. His figurative work painted in blood and water had incredible luminosity and detail. I appreciated his work even more after I heard him talk about it. He is definitely one of my new favourite artists. I would love to go to New York to see more of his work. I strongly recommend going to his show at Meta Gallery, which runs September 10-October 10 2010.
