Weird Baby World is a photo-based installation which was exhibited in the Plate Glass Window Gallery at the Niagara Artists Centre in St. Catharines (Ontario, Canada) for 3 1/2 months during the summer of 2021.

Bart Gazzola, self-named ‘art critic from hell,’ has published an insightful essay on WEIRD BABY WORLD as a feature on the Covert Collective’s web site. Read it here

Weird Baby World

My art making is based on imagination; I am interested in telling stories, play and mystery.
 
These are photographs of dolls, they are not real babies. Dolls – the things we give to children to play with. A child playing with a doll attributes a personality to it. A child’s play is often subversive and perverse. I approach dolls in the same way. These images were created from my imagination. In our society these figures are loaded with meaning. Those meanings are always in the back of my mind, but the figures are also personalities who exist primarily as players in the narratives I am exploring.
