Meryl McMaster's Second Self

Meryl McMaster will proudly be displaying her solo exhibition, Second Self, beginning tomorrow – Saturday, Feb. 19 in downtown Toronto’s garment district.

McMaster is a former winner of the OCAD Gold Medal (and $1,500 Vistek scholarship)- given each year to the Most Outstanding Photographer.

From the Leo Kamen Gallery website:
In considering the complex nature of identity, Meryl McMaster combines drawing and sculpture with photography. She asks various untrained individuals to draw “blind contour” self-portraits that are subsequently recreated as wire sculpture. She then photographs her subjects holding the wire contour. The end result is a multiple reinterpretation — in effect, a second self.

Don’t miss McMaster’s exhibit – running through to March 19 at the Leo Kamen Gallery in Toronto, Ontario.
