Look inside the Toronto studio of artist Mary Grisey, who burns, bleaches and weaves fabric to create intricate textile works. In this studio-visit video by Karly McCloskey, Grisey discusses her move away from painting, which was spurred by her frustration with painting’s rectangular limitations, and relays the best piece of artistic advice she’s ever received.
Originally from San Francisco, Grisey moved to Toronto to pursue her MFA at York University in 2014. She has shown work in Chicago, Toronto, San Francisco and Poughkeepsie.
Her work is currently on view at Typology Projects in Toronto, and she has an upcoming solo exhibition at Xpace Cultural Centre in Toronto.
