Women who Paint on Walls: Hazel Meyer and Margaret Kilgallen

One wall of the installation

Another wall!

Pleased to see a quote from Michel de Certeau included! (one of my favorite Situationist thinkers)

Love this one too.

She never did projections - She painted directly on the wall based on a sketches. Brave.

Two Saturdays ago I went to see "Hyper Hyper": an installation by my friend Hazel Meyer at The OCAD Graduate Gallery. The installation was Hazel's MFA Graduate thesis event. As explained in her invitation Hyper-Hyper was an installation of doodles, sketches, marks + text that weaved together the physiology of muscle building through resistance training with art methodology. It consumed the walls + floor of the gallery and was an explosive visualization of a discursive thought process!

Hazel's courageous doodles + text dancing on a large scale immediately reminded me of one of my favourite artists and mentors Margaret Killgallen -- so thought it was high time I included some pictures of her work on my blog. She is endlessly inspirational to me.
