I’ll be vending at the 4th annual Santa’s Choice Zine Fair — taking place at Xpace Cultural Centre (2 – 303 Lansdowne Ave, Toronto) from 12-6pm on Sat Dec 21, 2013. There will be zines, comics, small press, prints, t-shirts and tote bags, jewellery, crafts, and other handmade multiples by local artists and designers. Admission is free.
Two excerpts from the collage project The Fantasia Morose (1998-2000) appear this month in Papirmass No. 47 — their November 2013 issue.
About the issue: Liam Hogan ruminates on the Ten Frequently Asked Questions After Death, Mark Laliberte delivers two collage portraits of women remixed from fashion magazines, and Heather Kai Smith illustrates someone grappling with infinity. This print features two portraits and measures 9.5 x 15 inches (each portrait measures 7.5 x 9.5 inches).
More Than Two (Let It Make Itself)
Curated by Micah Lexier
Sep 21, 2013 - Jan 05, 2014
The Power Plant, Toronto
I currently have two works in Micah Lexier’s More Than Two (Let It Make Itself), a curatorial project that displays over 200 new and recently created artworks and objects by 101 artists/duos/collectives in and around Toronto. Encompassing artists at varying stages of their careers, Lexier presents his take on the wide-ranging, multi-generational portrait of a robust Toronto art community.
“The thirty vitrines that constitute the exhibition”, he states, “house my personal take on some of the wonderful, inventive, like-minded objects that I encountered during my research.”

Like a Switch Being Clicked (2013) is a large-scale graphic wall work that explores noise and its internalized relationship with the body. It is a cartoon sound-effect sonogram, a violent visual sound-poem, a migraine made visible; the work reminds us that sounds express themselves inside the head — passing through the complex mechanism of the eardrum, the world can whisper to us or it can scream, depending on the mood of the meat.
