I’m an artist, writer, and exhibition organizer.

My work has appeared in exhibitions at the FCCA in Prague, YYZ Artist’s Outlet in Toronto, Printed Matter in New York, and the Museo de la Ciudad de Querétaro in Mexico, amongst other venues. My writing has appeared in Art Papers, C Magazine, Peripheral Review, and Yishu Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, amongst other platforms and publications.

In 2019 I launched an ongoing curatorial project, Storage (3127), which has featured the work of Alan Ruiz, Jason Hirata, Leigh-Ann Pahapill, Claire Pentecost, Matthew Friday, Fereshteh Toosi, Sheena Hozsko, and Jessica Vaughn.

Self-Titled @ 8eleven, Toronto, ON

An exhibition on nature, mediation and aestheticization, set in the unfinished basement of storefront gallery space.

An animated video title card, a set of hand-drawn slides projected onto a foundation wall, a lighting studio backdrop stand with a composite image of the earth on synthetic silk, an amplified outdoor speaker with a simulated granite chassis, an artist statement in the form of a chapbook-length poetic monologue (written in collaboration with Corina Copp).
