I bought this book a couple of years ago while on vacation on Galiano Island (Galiano Island Books- I really like that little bookstore- http://www.galianoislandbooks.com/)
Thus was I introduced to the amazing artwork of Shary Boyle. As Sean Rogers says in a review of the book on The Walrus's blog back in October 2008, Boyle is concerned with "the fantastic and feminine and grotesque". This is true, so far as I can see, though those "concerns" are not what make her great. She executes everything she does masterfully (painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture... I haven't seen the overhead projection work), and this along with her unerring vision makes for some formidable artwork. It's not some creepy little system she's devised... there are no easy answers here. To my mind it's not so much an alternate world as it is a projection of an inner world (isn't that always the way?). Anyway. I don't claim to be an art critic- far from it. I JUST KNOW WHAT I LIKE.
