"Often the worst thing to do with what looks like a real philosophical question is to answer it. It can get in the way of a fuller understanding of what the question really is and where it comes from." Barry Stroud.
Or, to paraphrase John Berger "The subject of the picture is not necessarily the same as what it's about".
I was completely blown away last week to discover that I am included in 'A Dictionary of Canadian Artists' by Colin S MacDonald. Mr. MacDonald dedicated over 50 years to researching and compiling his labour of love, this series of dictionaries on Canadian artists. Many artists can be grateful to him for his work. I'm also very grateful to Christina Sabat for her reviews of my shows which Mr. MacDonald used as reference for my entry in the dictionary. There are several artists I know who are mentioned in the volume I have, and I wonder if they even know about it. Colin S. MacDonald passed away in 2012. Christina, in 1998. The most amazing thing in all this is that I found out about the book last Monday - Remembrance Day.
