I just finished work on a small piece of printed matter with John Latour. It will be part of his upcoming exhibition The Past Is a Foreign Country & The Chair Test at Harcourt House in Edmonton this March. JP King of Paper Pusher worked his risograph magic for us: teal ink on a warm, 60lb kraft stock. Yum!

The Chair Test

 

Also hot off the press: a catalogue for this year’s MFA program at Concordia University entitled Open Doors / Portes Ouverts. Karin Zuppiger is the true mastermind behind the publication – I just set up a grid and taught her some fancy keyboard shortcuts.

An exhibition of small sculptures held in the street-level window of my friend Karin’s apartment. Clunky geometric forms, polychromatic surfaces and plasticine figures pit playfulness and joy against uncertainty and despair.

The window will be home to new things to look at soon: nicetrys.tumblr.com
