I made this fur lifejacket partly in homage to Meret Oppenheim, one of the founders of surrealism and most famous for her “Object in Fur,” a fur teacup and spoon. Oppenheim is yet another woman artist who did not receive the credit or status she was due. This lifejacket was exhibited in the “Material” exhibition at Toronto Harbourfront Centre in 2009 and in the “Cut/Copy/Paste” exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum in 2010, curated by The Canadian Design Resource.

Local artists Jeff Depner, Russell Leng, Aaron Moran and Sarah Gee (see previous post on her here) are all showing their work in AFTER MATH, a group show at East Van Studio, 870 East Cordova Street, Vancouver, November 26-28, 2010. The show continues on November 27 and 28 from 11 am to 6 pm.
My design partner, the artist Sarah Gee, is having an opening on Friday, July 9, for a 2-day solo exhibition at the beautiful studio of designer and TV person Brad Gough. Come by if you’re in Vancouver, especially if you didn’t have the fortitude to line up to buy her work at the Cheaper Show.
