Room Magazine

I was delighted to receive word that Waiter’s Hourglass will be featured in the upcoming issue of Room Magazine. Room is Canada’s oldest feminist literary journal showcasing fiction, poetry, reviews, art work, interviews and profiles about the female experience.

Waiter’s Hourglass, as you can imagine, was inspired by my years of working in the service industry. According to the last census Canada has more artists than auto workers. Many of us seek work as servers and bartenders to subsidize our practices and provide us with flexibility. While a waitress I was often engaged in menial tasks, watching the hours drain away, wishing I was instead in my studio doing work for myself. Waiter’s Hourglass is an ode to this experience, illustrated by the materials of the trade – two ketchup bottles.

Forest City Gallery & ARTWINDSOR

Screen shot 2015-07-15 at 7.57.09 PM

I am pleased to announce that my new work, Waiter’s Hourglass, was featured in the Spring/Summer issue of ARTWINDSOR. If you can’t get your hands on a copy, you can download a PDF version of artmeal.

Waiter’s Hourglass was also part of the Biennial Emerging Artists Exhibition – Uncooperative at Forest City Gallery. This year addressing the theme of ‘exhaustion,’ Uncooperative speaks to creative workers’ systematic exhaustion and the realization that we are collectively bound up in the same pressures to perform based on the unrealistic, counter-productive expectations of fast-food economics: quick, effective, more.

The Untitled Alberta tour

Title_UntitledShlomi Greenspan and I proudly presented Untitled (It’s Almost a One-Liner) at The New Gallery in Calgary at the end of 2014, and at Harcourt House in Edmonton during the spring of 2015 .

Sky Goodden’s essay accompanied the show – you can read it here.

The Calgary Herald’s Swerve Magazine recommended our show and featured an interview with us by Craig R. Palmer.

The Edmonton Examiner‘s Doug Johnson discussed the show’s uncanny juggling act between performance art and installation.

Getting to know the local art communities was great, and it won’t be long before we’re back.
