last night i dreamt i was...

A few years ago I had the great pleasure of collaborating on a show with Suzanne Carlsen   Suzanne is an amazing artist from Toronto and a super friend of mine.  Titled: Last night I dreamt I was…      the show focused on the icons and archetypes of our favourite fantasy occupations.  The show was installed in the vitrines along the studio corridor at Harbourfront Centre.  Viewers had to peek through the windows to see the work inside.  Here are a few of the occupations we dreamt about:

Last night I dreamt I was...


... a private detective 

... a circus performer


 ... an astronaut





... a ballerina



... a scuba diver
