Noise Ghost: Shary Boyle and Shuvinai Ashoona
May 28 – August 23, 2009
Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Hart House, University of Toronto
Toronto artist Shary Boyle, who is well known for her delicate figurines (often championed on VoCA) is paired with Cape Dorset artist Shuvinai Ashoona, who first came to our attention a few years ago, and did a fantastic collaboration with John Noestheden titled Earth and Sky for Nuit Blanche Toronto last year.
The two artists were paired by curator Nancy Campbell because both of their imagery recalls and articulates the anxieties of life.
Shuvinai Ashoonas’ drawings are also on view at Carleton University Art Gallery in Ottawa (click HERE) from April 27 – June 14, 2009. She is represented by Feheley Fine Arts, Toronto. Click HERE for the gallery website.
