Artist Residency

Artscape, Toronto, Canada

April 13th – 24th

My intention is to deal with very mundane objects found on-site. This series of photos leans into the language of the still life and is largely composed of furniture, objects and building materials found throughout the artist run center. I am interested by the dialogue among objects and between object and human.  Objects are inherently a social product. They have an  accumulated  and referential quality.  They possess an unruly subjectivity. They  have the ability to carry with them a sense of place, value, time, nostalgia, ideas, ideals, taste, art,  and desire.
