Shary Boyle

p p p p Shary Boyle was born in Scarborough, Ontario, in 1972. The only artist in a suburban, working-class family, Boyle mined her early memories of female “otherness” to imagine fantastical alternatives to the limitations of convention. Her work has been acquired by the National Gallery of Canada and the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, among others. In 2008, the Toronto-based Boyle was commissioned by the AGO to respond to the Gallery’s collection of Baroque bronzes by Giovanni Battista Foggini. The resulting two sculptures have met with universal acclaim from the artistic and critical communities and are now a part of the AGO’s permanent collection — along with a 2006 acquisition, Untitled (pregnant figure), also a porcelain sculpture.
