Julie Moon: Acid Garden Exhibition At Birch Contemporary

Julie Moon’s exhibition “Acid Garden” at Birch Contemporary has been extended through to January 26th, 2019. I popped in to see it last week and I loved seeing her sculptures up close—those textures! the colours. I’m more familiar with her wearables (her pins and earrings are amazing!) and had never seen her sculptures in person.

When I first saw Grace Eunmi Lee‘s work a year ago it went against everything I assumed about ceramics. Her little…

Ying Gao at The Textile Museum of Canada

Effortless, weightless, other-wordly, and sometimes so intricate they look simple. Those are a few things that strike me about Ying Gao‘s fashions.
