Sandra Brewster is a multi-disciplinary artist. Untitled (Doily) considers a personal collection of items that either belonged to her mother, or that she has collected during trips to Guyana and other places in the Caribbean. Brewster reflects on how these objects, many domestic, represent a connection to home and to “back home,” sparking shared memories beyond this current place. Brewster holds a Masters of Visual Studies from the University of Toronto and has exhibited internationally. In 2017, her exhibition It’s all a blur… received the Gattuso Prize for outstanding featured exhibition at the CONTACT Photography Festival (Toronto). In 2018 she received the Artist Prize from Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts and was the artist-in-residence at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
