Shary Boyle at the Art Gallery of Ontario

There's something to be said about a contemporary artist when the Art Gallery of Ontario devotes an entire exhibition to her work.  Shary Boyle recently opened a four-room exhibition on the main floor at the AGO. It must be experienced.

A whimsical take on sexuality, love, family and childhood, "Flesh and Blood" includes paintings, installation, projection and sculpture.

Here's a brief video of some of her sculptures:  Sex (2008), Birth (2008), Death (2008), Black Mushrooms (2009), The Letter (2009), The Blind (2010), Silver Thread (2006) and The Sighted (2009). (They don't appear in this order.)
