Celebrated Torontonian Artist Shary Boyle works in many media. She is an interdisciplinary artist who exquisitely moves from drawing, painting, sculpture, and performance art. Her arts explore themes of gender and class.  She is particularly known for her explorations of the figure through porcelain figurines. Her porcelain figurines are critiques on colonialism, religion, art history and sexuality.

Shary Boyle’s practice invokes and explores different elements; the personal and the political; the emotional and the intellectual; the expansive and the focused; and the abject and the mainstream. Boyle adheres to the importance of articulating an inner voice.

She studied at the Ontario College of Art, graduating in 1994. A winner of the Hnatyshyn Foundation Award and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize, Boyle was shortlisted for the 2009 Sobey Art Award and has exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario. She was included at the 2010 Canadian Biennial and represented Canada at the 2013 Venice Biennale.
