My Highlights from Art Toronto

After spending the last six years immersed in the Canadian art world, it will come as no surprise that the ten works I chose from vast list provided to me all ended up being Canadian! I didn’t set out to only chose Canadians, but it turns out that even the unknown to me artists are from Canada, which just leads me to believe that no matter how much research is done there is always more to discover. My choices cover some old friends (Marcel Dzama and Janet Warner), some I have followed but not yet worked with (Kym Greely, Will Gill, Eve K. Tremblay and Raphaelle de Groot) and new faces I look forward to seeing more from (Siassie Jenneally, Shari Hatt, and Tristram Lansdowne).
