Thank you Ontario Arts Council!

I’m pleased to announce that I have received a Mid-Career, Visual Artists Creation Project Grant from the Ontario Arts Council to develop Caesura.

Caesura (a Latin word to describe a pause or break within apoetic verse) examines the dichotomy between the mirroring and the assertion ofself that I witness between my daughters and myself. As my children movethrough girlhood, I see their social development evolve through theirinteractions with one another, peers and adults.  I am intrigued by the subtle details in thesecasual exchanges: the awkward pauses, the self-conscious yet self-aware bodylanguage, and an indifference to personal space. Inspired by observations ofchildhood growth,  Caesura will create dialogue on topics of autonomy,intergenerational experience, and intimacy.
