RIP Joe Fafard. It was so nice to meet you at openings and exhibitions over the years. I was just admiring your giant rooster outside Winchester Galleries yesterday.

High-rise by Shawn Shepherd at Audain Gallery | Visual Arts | UVic uses satire and sales to speak about the art market. A clever and amusing show. Photographed here with my “favourite” painting. Until March 16, 2019.

Deer usually win at staring contests, they have an admirably long attention span. According to a study by Microsoft in 2018, the average human being now has an attention span of eight seconds, which is about the same as a #squirrel

Happy International Women’s Day and a thank you to those who champion for equality in the arts. Guerilla Squirrel, 48”x48”, oil on panel 2015, is a tribute painting to the Guerilla Girls’. Since 1985, the Guerrilla Girls’, an anonymous collective of female artists and art-world professionals, have used gorilla masks, glue brushes, and acidly satiric posters to prove that humour (and fake fur) can illuminate and educate the art community to the sexism, racism and inequality in the art world. The Guerrilla Girls’ 1986 Report Card tallied the number of women represented by top New York galleries at the time.

In Feb 2015, curator Maura Reilly @maurareilly68 posted gallery gender statistics of Pussy Galore’s 2015 Report Card by the Feminist Art Collective showing the percentages of women represented by some of the top art galleries in New York City today. There is still a lot of work to be done.

Here’s to another 30 years of kicking idiocy in the arse.
