// Toronto artist Shary Boyle opened her exhibition ‘Flesh & Blood’ @ the Art Gallery of Ontario today, smack dab in the middle of TIFF. Thirty pieces of her work are displayed in mediums like: sculpting, painting, audio-visual, installations & drawing. “Shary Boyle’s symbolic language generates daring and original perspectives on the present,” says Louise Déry, director Galerie de l’UQAM in Montréal. “Her work unveils a consciousness haunted by considerations of the nature of life, heredity, sexuality, death, and our relationship to other species, and is executed with ingenuity and virtuosity across multiple media, in a formidable range of scale and detail.”
