Chose (a play on words from the English verb, to choose; and the French noun, thing) is a series of collages composed from individual wood sculptures. These painted plywood cutouts resemble various familiar objects. Stripped of their function, these ‘symbols’ are reminiscent of commercial signage, and inspired by the decorated facades of working class churches in Toronto. Chose creates a lexicon of personal iconography, intentionally vague in meaning.

This project was generously funded through the Toronto Arts Council.
