Shary Boyle: Otherworld UprisingShary Boyle: Otherworld Uprising

Published by Conundrum Press.
Text by Ben Portis, Josée Drouin-Brisebois, Sheila Heti.

Otherworld Uprising is the first major monograph for Toronto-based Shary Boyle, who is becoming known for her uncanny and exquisite porcelain figurines that skillfully subvert the historical expectations inherent to this traditional material. Boyle's multifaceted practice also includes figurative drawing, painting and performances that give voice to the under-represented--children, animals and women--while also taking on aspects of the spiritual and the metaphysical. Through dream-like references to mythology and fairytales, her imagery illustrates female desire from a female point of view.
Boyle is also known for her multi-layered audio-visual performances, during which she does live drawings on an overhead projector. Many of these have been incorporated into shows by musicians such as Feist, Peaches, Christine Fellows and Will Oldham. This volume contains new stories by novelist Sheila Heti, illustrated by Boyle, as well as texts by the Curator of Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Canada, Josée Drouin-Brisebois, and Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Ben Portis.
