Most of the pieces seen here are gold-ink stamped multiples and watercolour drawings mounted on small disks (2-3 inches diameter) of sliced branches found in my backyard and the neighboring surroundings. There are 175 in total. The gold images, representations of people and things key to my identity and my experiences of love, are printed from hand-carved linoleum stamps onto handmade paper. The title of the project is Another Day With You, and each wooden disk is accompanied by a Haiku written by Paula Huisman, a Toronto poet. Her work can be read here.
Another Day With You is distributed through The Magic Gumball Machine of Fate, an artist’s multiple project that distributes work by Canadian creators and makes art affordable for everyone. The machines are curated by Toronto artist Catherine Heard. More information about that initiative can be found HERE.
