Meryl McMaster is a Canadian-based artist and a graduate in photography from the Ontario College of Art and Design University. Her artistic practice begins with photography, evoking a journey that follows a path of self-discovery. She is interested in exploring questions of how we construct our sense of self through lineage, history and culture. McMasters practice extends beyond straight photography by incorporating other artistic media into how she builds images and expresses her ideas. McMasters resulting work takes advantage of both the spontaneity of photography and the manual production of props or sculptural garments, performance and self-reflection. McMasters work unravels identity and subjectivity as something that is never complete, but always in process and invariably formed from within.
