Invisible Eyes

I want to see the world without the world seeing me.

I want to live in Orange Gallery’s new building.

I discovered you can still draw on canadian dollar bills. Also, a new lino with a child inside a bear!

I went to drop off another piece at the OAG (I sold one!) and ended up going to Colin White’s artist talk. I was awkwardly trapped in the next room for a bit while Jim Watson gave his speech ( hence the photo of their backs) but I was able to eventually squeeze around and I’m really happy I went ( I had seen the event posted somewhere, but I thought I had missed it so it was a pleasant surprise)

also: my computer is becoming more and more obsolete ( 7 yr old mac which I haven’t updated since I got it) so I am slowly getting shut out of tumblr ( I can’t ‘like’ or leave comments, among a few other things ( because I can’t update my browser.) Thankfully I can still post ( kind of)

Working hard or hardly working

I have a little website!

It’s not fancy, one of those code-illiterate friendly places where you just drag and drop things( so perfect for me) but it gets the job done.

So I got my SX 70 fixed (I bought for $20 but focus wheel was stuck) and I found it is QUITE a bit trickier to use than my 600 type. I would either over or under expose images ( need to get to know it better) Also the weather was being a jerk in Paris ( for example I went to a cemetery and the sun came out full force, then when I left the clouds came back)

went to Europe finally! ( Barcelona | Paris | Madrid )

some polaroids ( got my sx 70 fixed)
and yashika photos will come in time,
but for now my phone pictures ( I have a unhealthy obsession with filters)

SHIFT | The Ottawa School of Art | Grad Show 2013
SHIFT is a Grad Show currently on exhibit at the Ottawa School of Art, until the 25th of July, 2013. It features the works of graduates Melissa Blackman, Virginia Dupuis, Kimberly Edgar, Jane Ladan, Kathleen McCrea and Jenn Noseworthy, and what’s great about it is that all their unique works come together flawlessly, to create a cornucopia of natural whimsy.
Whether it’s Jenn Noseworthy’s floating bee’s, Jane Ladan’s coral reef-like sculptural neck-pieces or Melissa Blackman’s psychedelic paintings, walking into the exhibition space feels like walking into an ethereal space, as if from a fairy tale.
You almost expect a few fairies or garden gnomes to pop up once in awhile.
The hanging bee’s are much larger than normal bees, and even though they are hanging in a swarm formation, they are more of a welcome party than a threat, placed just outside the gallery space. The sculptural neck-pieces on the other hand, look like regalia on display.
The paintings, prints and images on the walls set the ambiance and backdrop to this magical experience.

At my friend Delphine Sullivan’s opening tonight. So many skulls!

Not to mention that she is also printing shirts, and I’ve got a very special order >:}

We’re stuck together,

may as well make the best of it.

First Day off the job.

went to OSA’s annual Holiday Art Sale, then went over to the ‘Stephen Harper: Portrait Gallery’

I especially love Sharon Lafferty’s creepy eyed scissor wielding Harper.
