Georgia Dickie was recently featured in the Toronto Star.
“Georgia Dickie’s west-end studio is at best an obstacle course and at worst a death trap (“Watch your eyes,” she warns, stepping over and between various sharp objects, some of which dangle from the ceiling at head height). If order from chaos is Dickie’s MO, then she sets her table nicely: for the past several years, the artist has enjoyed a career upswing both here and abroad (right now, she’s making work for a show in San Francisco) and her pack-rat sensibility deserves much credit. Dickie, an expert salvager, has a hard time saying no — industrial moulds and discarded wire, rusted steel bands, pocked sheet metal, giant springs, old curling rollers, bentwood arms from broken chairs; all have found their way into works in recent years — and her project, as much as anything, is to clear her space of the radical junk piles she accumulates. The anxiety of accumulation, though, is like jet fuel for her, firing a hectic creative output that’s spontaneous, playful but also coolly intuitive about material, proportion and form. You can see Dickie’s work at Cooper Cole Gallery as part of I Am Not an Answer until March 26.”
