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 a poetic verse) examines the dichotomy between the mirroring and the assertion of self that I witness between my daughters and myself. As my children move through girlhood, I see their social development evolve through their interactions with one another, peers and adults.  I am intrigued by the subtle details in these casual exchanges: the awkward pauses, the self-conscious yet self-aware body language, and an indifference to personal space. Inspired by observations of childhood growth,  Caesura will create dialogue on topics of autonomy, intergenerational experience, and intimacy.
