Quick Draw Artist Interview #20: Meichen Waxer

Quick Draw Artist Interviews are a series of interviews conducted by Otino Corsano using Facebook's IM Chat feature. Spontaneous conversations with international artists are recorded and documented specifically for publication on this blog.

Quick: counter. Random triggers. Toni Only; Rita Letendre; Kosso Eloul; Dora Hunt. But they only pushed the detonators. I wired everything. I just shot them on film and my hassy doesn't have a timer. Micheline Beauchaumin and Albie Frank in Japan. They are uploading now. Draw: art about art.

Meichen Waxer is a Toronto based artist, yet she has spent time living in Montreal and in Paris during the Summer Creative Residency 2010 at Parsons Paris as overseen by Charlotte Moth. Waxer has always been fascinated with ideas of fantasy, constructed histories and turn of the century melancholy. Elements of female craft and body are interwoven into her interdisciplinary practice juxtaposing photography, textile-based sculpture and painting. Meichen explores processes finely incorporating anxiety, obsession and occupation. She graduated from OCAD in 2007 with a major in photography, receiving The Faculty and Friends of Photography Award. Waxer is a recipient of the Toronto Arts Council Emerging Artist Grant and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
