Weird Baby World is a photo-based installation in the Plate Glass Window Gallery at the Niagara Artists Centre, 354 St. Paul St., St. Catharines (Ontario, Canada). It can be viewed at anytime of day from the street. On display until September 11, 2021.
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.
