Ceramic plate from a watercolour sketch on paper.
Commissioned for the MOCCA awards in 2013.
Limited edition 170/500

diameter 12 in — 30.5 cm

Private collection, Toronto

The human figure is the bedrock of Shary Boyle’s often fantastical and transgressive artistic practice. Proficient across a range of media, including drawing, painting, performance and sculpture, Boyle came to international prominence in 2013 when she represented Canada at the 55th Venice Biennale. Her multimedia presentation in Venice’s Giardini, titled Music for Silence (2013), included virtuoso porcelain depictions of stooped female figures bearing colossal loads on their backs.

Estimate: $700–1,000
