An excerpt from Sarah Kernohan’s graphite on Mylar sediment studies up now at the Artery. [ECH1207, 263 Phillip St, Waterloo ONT].

Dropped in to see my friend Mike today. For 50+ years he’s operated, Fritsch Fragrances, a cosmetic and perfume sales counter. Interestingly, he has lining his store a series of about three dozen framed illustrations documenting the history of pharmacy—a carry-over from when his store was more a druggist than a perfumery. Stop by if you’re in the area, it is full of curiosities [201 King St W, Kitchener ONT].

A bottle given to me for helping a woman obtain fresh drinking water. Two or three days after she’d got the water, she came back and handed me the old milk bottle, telling me I needed to pray for her so that she’d soon meet a fireman, one, ‘taller than [her] to take [her] out of here.’ I wasn’t sure of her geographical bearing, and didn’t ask.

'hungrier than most…' Mixed media on 16”by16” mat board. Autumn 2006.

One of the earliest pieces I still have from when I’d started working. A collaboration with an artist I’d done a number of pieces with, but who I would later fall out against. Every kind of medium jammed on to one ground including watercolour, collage, ink, paint, spray paint, etc., and framed in the least expensive frame available (the glass would frequently break in half of them, either because of poor quality or because we’d wire them improperly—as seen here—and they’d fall off the walls of the collectors who bought the pieces early on).
