Art Hag – Welcome!
Hey Art lovers!
Art Hag is a new blog for theBuzz. It will highlight brief interviews with artists and cultural producers in the GTA and beyond. Art Hag will also feature some reviews as well as top recommended exhibitions and events each week, or as things come to me across the ether. Sometimes there will be gossip when GTA art stars spill the beans. The blog will focus on queer artists, including all of the lovely letters that make the rainbow bright, and also artists from a wide spectrum of cultural practices.
About the Author
Artist Statement My interests in artistic production range from the obscure, to experimental, popular, spiritual, queer and to the political. Working with individuals, collectives and community groups have been part of my practice as an artist, curator and director. I prefer to create narrative-based and identity-based art, but also love artwork that explores more formalist themes and materials.
