Sara Guindon’s Objects of Affection (Headquarters Sept. 9)

“Objects Of Affection” New illustrations and animation by Sara Guindon at Headquarters Galerie & Boutique. 1649 Amherst, Montreal, QC. Opening reception Thursday, September 9th, 2010, 6-11 pm.

Headquarters is proud to present, “Objects of Affection”, a maudlin group of endearing creatures placed in knotty worlds, both spooky and familiar that will tug at your heartstrings and tickle your funny bone.

Objects of Affection showcases a collection of new collaged drawings and dolls, a short cut-out animation called “Dropkin” and a collection of collaborative pieces with fashion designer Supayana (AKA Yana Gorbulsky), combining her illustrations with Yana’s designs.

Originally from Toronto, Sara has called Montreal home for almost ten years and will soon be moving to Denver, Colorado. Sara spends most of her days drawing, painting, cutting-up illustrations and putting them back together, and co-running her small arts and crafts business the Pin Pals with her stitching partner Sam. In 2008, she completed her first animation Wiggles and Giggles at the National Film Board as an intern for Hothouse 5. Sara is inspired by vintage children’s books, cartoons, folk art and just about everything else.
