Meryl McMaster’s potent, mysterious photographs explore the fluid domain of identity, and the possibilities for examining and revisioning the self and its representation. Placing her body centrally in front of the camera, McMaster transforms her appearance. By layering photographic images onto her body or through elaborate costumes and props she inhabits and explores alter egos.
Organized and circulated by Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa; Curated by Heather Anderson.
