Just back from NYC, and have lots of stuff to share! The first is a show we saw at the David Zwirner gallery in Chelsea, of one of my favourite illustrators - Marcel Dzama, who happens to be a fellow Canadian from Winnipeg. His drawings are both whimsical and dark at the same time - creating this whole universe populated with a mix of humans, animals, and fantasy creatures. And a whole lotta masks, which of course always reminds me of the performance art piece that you and I did in Times Square all those years ago! This exhibit featured a mix of drawings, large sculptures and incredibly detailed dioramas, all related to a short film also on view, which mixes ballet and war in a surreal game of chess.
