As with any action, labor is an essential component of mark-making. The actions of mark-making often mirror that of the worker - we rub, squeeze, mold and polish. In this sense labor is a process of understanding materiality, history and biography. In my more recent projects I consider the relationship of labor and mark-making, experimenting with how one can represent objects through collaborative and collective interactions, and how the resulting efforts – and tension - influence form and composition.

I would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council as well as the Toronto Arts Council.
