I recently visited the Art Gallery of Ontario, a truly sublime experience. The gallery was overrun with meaningful depictions of life and love, poignant questions and perfectly delivered answers. Amongst this spectacularly serndipitious sea of artistic satisfaction was a collection of photos that made me stop and think for quite some time.
Shelley Niro’s ‘The Shirt’, created in 2003, is a beautifully blunt exploration of the subjugation of the native culture in North America. It truly speaks for itself, so I will allow it to.
