A lot of my inspiration comes while traveling and absorbing other cultures and landscapes, particularly those of France and Italy. As the son of an architect who instilled in me a love of modernist art and architecture, I'm also inspired by painters such as Picasso, Miro and Max Ernst.

Dieter Grund

First Name: Dieter

Biography (English): Words contained in images have always been important to Dieter Grund. His early drawings demonstrate an interesting and playful relationship using words and images. At York University Eugenio Tellez introduced him to S.W. Hayter's printmaking and Dennis Rowan's aquatint method. Tweaked along the way by David Bolduc, Keiichi Hayano, Vincent Sharp and John Snow, Grund's commitment to printmaking deepened and in 1978 he established Presswerk Editions. Through collaborations with artists, poets, photographers and performance artists his Griffin press has been a stalwart, generous and accommodating companion, allowing for a wide range of sizes in the many projects emerging from its press bed. Personal artistic interests led Dieter Grund to embark on projects that allowed him to explore the limits of his printing process. From impressions of deer hooves for Toby MacLennan to creating the atmospheric colour blends of Rita Letendre in an etching and learning photogravure, he slowly built skills to better explore the possibilities of crushing ink into paper. Copper plate and wood plank became the matrices that yielded the most personally satisfying results, allowing Grund to explore projects that straddle handmade books and limited-edition prints equally. His collaboration on text and design-related projects with Bill Morgan of Lunar Caustic Press in the early 1980s piqued an interest in handmade books, which remains a strong element in Dieter Grund's own work and studio collaborations to the present. The Presswerk Editions studio catalogue reveals repeated collaboration with artists such as David Bolduc and Tony Calzetta, whose work with writers brings a fresh view to both the writing and the images.

Biography (French): Les mots contenus dans les images ont toujours été importants pour Dieter Grund. Ses premiers dessins démontrent une relation intéressante et ludique entre les mots et les images. À l'Université York, Eugenio Tellez le présenta à S.W. La gravure de Hayter et la méthode de l'aquatinte de Dennis Rowan. Affiné au fil du temps par David Bolduc, Keiichi Hayano, Vincent Sharp et John Snow, l'engagement de Grund envers la gravure s'est approfondi et en 1978, il a créé Presswerk Editions. Grâce à des collaborations avec des artistes, des poètes, des photographes et des artistes de performance, sa presse Griffin s'est révélée un compagnon fidèle, généreux et accommodant, permettant une large gamme de tailles dans les nombreux projets émergeant de son lit de presse. Des intérêts artistiques personnels ont amené Dieter Grund à se lancer dans des projets qui lui ont permis d'explorer les limites de son procédé d'impression. Des impressions de sabots de cerf pour Toby MacLennan à la création des mélanges de couleurs atmosphériques de Rita Letendre dans une gravure et à l'apprentissage de la photogravure, il a progressivement développé ses compétences pour mieux explorer les possibilités de broyage de l'encre sur le papier. Les plaques de cuivre et les planches de bois sont devenues les matrices qui ont donné les résultats les plus satisfaisants sur le plan personnel, permettant à Grund d'explorer des projets à cheval entre les livres faits à la main et les tirages en édition limitée. Sa collaboration sur des projets liés au texte et au design avec Bill Morgan de Lunar Caustic Press au début des années 1980 a éveillé un intérêt pour les livres faits à la main, qui restent un élément fort du travail de Dieter Grund et de ses collaborations en studio jusqu'à aujourd'hui. Le catalogue de l'atelier Presswerk Editions révèle des collaborations répétées avec des artistes tels que David Bolduc et Tony Calzetta, dont le travail avec les écrivains apporte un regard neuf sur l'écriture et les images.

K.M. Graham

First Name: K.M.

Biography (English): Kathleen Margaret Graham RCA was a Canadian abstract impressionist artist known for depicting colours and patterns she found in nature. She is known for becoming a painter at the age of 50. She graduated from Trinity College at the University of Toronto with a degree in home economics in 1936. She never received a formal education or training in art. Graham was a museum docent at the Art Gallery of Toronto, where she became familiar with works by Piet Mondrian and American colour field painters. During travels with her husband, she visited art galleries and museums, developing her love of art. Encouraged by Jack Bush to paint, Graham had her first solo art exhibition in Toronto in 1967, at the Carmen Lamanna Gallery.

Steve Gouthro

First Name: Steve

Biography (English): A respected artist and teacher, Steve Gouthro has influenced many young artists with his careful compositions, large-scale, figurative paintings and detailed cross-hatched drawings and prints. Gouthro's work celebrates the mystical, symbolic and allegorical references of everyday life. His realist painting, sometimes called magical, is underscored by careful drawing and complex figurative compositions. Gouthro has explored the urban view, the cityscape, classical sculpture, garden imagery and the nature of work and history in previous bodies of work. His oil-painted surfaces are super-layered. A delicately rendered face, a convincing illusion of depth, and a shimmery surface of light and pattern catch our attention. This May, Gouthro is the artist in residence at The Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) with scheduled public lectures and workshops and time for private critiques. Gouthro's work is on view at the WAG's Art Rental and Sales Gallery all summer. Two of his paintings, Waiting and Waiting Outside, and smaller drawings are featured in a two-person exhibition at Winnipeg's Site Gallery June 1 to 28, 2003.

Sa peinture réaliste, parfois qualifiée de magique, est soulignée par un dessin soigné et des compositions figuratives complexes. Gouthro a exploré la vue urbaine, le paysage urbain, la sculpture classique, l'imagerie des jardins ainsi que la nature du travail et de l'histoire dans des travaux antérieurs. Ses surfaces peintes à l'huile sont superposées. Un visage délicatement rendu, une illusion convaincante de profondeur et une surface chatoyante de lumière et de motifs attirent notre attention. En mai prochain, Gouthro est l'artiste en résidence à la Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) avec des conférences publiques et des ateliers programmés et du temps pour des critiques privées.

First Name: William

Biography (English): William Gill is a Canadian visual artist known for his wide-ranging works in sculpture, painting, photography, video and installation art. Gill received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1991 from Mount Allison University, where he studied sculpture and printmaking. "Some of Gill's notable works have drawn upon the Newfoundland landscape. In the 2009 performance Cape Spear, he tossed fibreglass-encased glow sticks off of the easternmost point of North America using a catapult." "The 2009 installation Bareneed is a replica of a cast-iron bathtub that Gill saw on the bottom of the ocean floor while sea-kayaking near the titular coastal community (the artist himself has noted that the St. John's setting has been key to his art production)." In March 2013, Gill was selected from a group of 31 artists to create an indoor public art installation in the lobby of a new office building in St. John's, set to open in the spring of 2014 - the first private juried art commission in the province awarded to a local artist. From June to November 2013 he exhibited along with artist Peter Wilkins as part of an official Collateral Project at the 2013 Venice Biennale. Gill was longlisted for the Sobey Art Award, Canada's preeminent contemporary art award, in 2004, 2006, and 2023. After an inspirational journey around the Avalon Peninsula in 1996, Will Gill decided to move to St. John's, Newfoundland, where he was soon offered an opportunity to work as an apprentice at the bronze casting foundry located at the Boreal Sculpture Park and Garden Foundry, run by sculptor Luben Boykov and environmentalist John Evans. "'There was something about the people and place when I came here that seemed just perfect for the way I am, the way I like to live,' he says. 'The temperament of the people, the generosity and so on. And it was that that made me think right away: this is it. I fell in love right away.'"

Biography (French): William Gill est un artiste visuel canadien connu pour ses œuvres variées en sculpture, peinture, photographie, vidéo et installation. Gill a obtenu son baccalauréat en beaux-arts en 1991 à l'Université Mount Allison, où il a étudié la sculpture et la gravure. « Certaines des œuvres remarquables de Gill s'inspirent du paysage terre-neuvien. Dans la performance Cape Spear de 2009, il a lancé des bâtons lumineux enveloppés de fibre de verre depuis le point le plus à l'est de l'Amérique du Nord à l'aide d'une catapulte. » "L'installation Bareneed de 2009 est une réplique d'une baignoire en fonte que Gill a vue au fond de l'océan alors qu'il faisait du kayak de mer près de la communauté côtière titulaire (l'artiste lui-même a noté que le décor de St. John's a été la clé de son production artistique)." En mars 2013, Gill a été sélectionnée parmi un groupe de 31 artistes pour créer une installation d'art public intérieure dans le hall d'entrée d'un nouvel immeuble de bureaux à St. John's, dont l'ouverture est prévue au printemps 2014 - la première commission d'art privée avec jury dans le province décernée à un artiste local. De juin à novembre 2013, il a exposé avec l'artiste Peter Wilkins dans le cadre d'un projet collatéral officiel à la Biennale de Venise 2013. Gill a été sélectionné pour le Sobey Art Award, le prix d'art contemporain le plus prestigieux au Canada, en 2004, 2006 et 2023. Après un voyage inspirant autour de la péninsule d'Avalon en 1996, Will Gill a décidé de déménager à St. John's, à Terre-Neuve, où on lui a rapidement offert l'opportunité de travailler comme apprenti à la fonderie de bronze située au Boreal Sculpture Park and Garden Foundry, dirigé par le sculpteur Luben Boykov et l'écologiste John Evans. "Quand je suis arrivé ici, il y avait quelque chose dans les gens et dans l'endroit qui semblait parfait pour la façon dont je suis, la façon dont j'aime vivre", dit-il. "Le tempérament des gens, la générosité, etc. est-ce que ça m'a tout de suite fait penser : ça y est, je suis tombé amoureux tout de suite.'"

Monique Genton

First Name: Monique

Biography (English): Monique Genton is an artist of the Canadian Pacific Northwest, who works in a variety of art mediums: from painting, to film, to photography, and often combined. Monique’s art is socially charged, from earlier work that focused on ideas of the female body as object, and more recently, regarding ideas around land development and architecture. Monique’s childhood consisted of living in the eastern farms and forests of the Ottawa valley, along with the western suburbs of Richmond and the rugged coastline of B.C. These earliest experiences lead to questions of land development, which have now become a big part of her art. Staring out in a career as a medical radiographer, Monique went on to study art at a variety of schools. From New York (American Independent Colleges of Art), to Halifax (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design), Vancouver (Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, University of British Columbia), and Chicago (Art Institute of Chicago, Art and Technology), Monique learned a great deal about social and technical aspects in art

L’enfance de Monique a consisté à vivre dans les fermes et les forêts de l’est de la vallée de l’Outaouais, ainsi que dans la banlieue ouest de Richmond et sur la côte accidentée de la Colombie-Britannique. Ces premières expériences conduisent à des questions d’aménagement du territoire, qui constituent aujourd’hui une part importante de son art. Débutant une carrière de radiologue médicale, Monique a ensuite étudié l'art dans diverses écoles. De New York (American Independent Colleges of Art), à Halifax (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design), Vancouver (Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Université de la Colombie-Britannique) et Chicago (Art Institute of Chicago, Art and Technology ), Monique a beaucoup appris sur les aspects sociaux et techniques de l'art

Joan Frick

First Name: Joan

Biography (English): Joan Frick. Frick was a graduate of École des Beaux-Arts de l’Université de Montréal with a Master of Fine Arts, avec Prix, in 1963. Her own words: “Of pertinent and long-standing value to my maturity as an artist are my continued studies in physics, mathematics and astronomy in addition to art, its masters and concepts, and my design experience in architecture and urban planning.” In her artwork, Frick “takes the technological principles of still film photography for a creative alternative ride with her handheld camera drawing lines in its space. Shooting her composition at the same time creating it – as directly as pen-nib to paper – Joan Frick draws her lines with a point of non-static light in the dark, moving her camera at will to form the lines, various in length, colour, angle and sweep that compose her art.”

Biography (French): Jeanne Frick. Frick est diplômé de l’École des Beaux-Arts de l’Université de Montréal avec une maîtrise en beaux-arts, avec Prix, en 1963. Ses propres mots : « Mes études continues en physique, en mathématiques et en astronomie, en plus de l'art, de ses maîtres et de ses concepts, ainsi que mon expérience du design en architecture et en urbanisme, ont une valeur pertinente et de longue date pour ma maturité en tant qu'artiste. » Dans ses œuvres, Frick « reprend les principes technologiques de la photographie argentique pour une balade créative alternative avec son appareil photo portatif dessinant des lignes dans son espace. En prenant sa composition en même temps qu'elle la crée - aussi directement que la plume d'un stylo sur du papier - Joan Frick dessine ses lignes avec un point de lumière non statique dans l'obscurité, déplaçant son appareil photo à volonté pour former des lignes de longueur variable, la couleur, l’angle et le balayage qui composent son art.

John Fox

First Name: John

Biography (English): John Fox attended McGill University, the École des beaux-arts de Montréal and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art and Design (1946-1949) where he met and was influenced by landscape painter Goodridge Roberts. He then worked for the critic-painter John Lyman in McGill’s Department of Art. In 1952, Fox received a British Council Scholarship to study at the Slade School of Art, University of London, followed by two years of independent work in Florence and Paris. Returning to Montreal, Fox began his career as a painter and teacher at the Saidye Bronfman Centre in the later 1960s and then as a professor in the Painting and Drawing Department at Concordia University in 1970 until his retirement in 1998. Fox was a member of the Canadian Group of Painters and was also made an Associate Member of the Royal Canadian Academy but he resigned within a year because of its conservative attitudes. In the 1960s, he was awarded a mural commission for the inauguration of the Confederation Art Centre in Charlottetown. Fox was a life-long resident of Montreal and also spent a significant time in Venice, Italy starting in the mid 1970s. In Venice, the Intimism inspired paintings for which he had become known gave way to large abstract canvases. The hue, tone and personality of his numbered painting from this period were inspired by the rich colours of Venetian frescoes and Mediterranean light. Fox’s artwork is held in many private, corporate and public collections including the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Museum London, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.

Biography (French): John Fox a fréquenté l'Université McGill, l'École des beaux-arts de Montréal et le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, École d'art et de design (1946-1949), où il a rencontré et a été influencé par le peintre paysagiste Goodridge Roberts. Il travaille ensuite pour le peintre critique John Lyman au Département des arts de McGill. En 1952, Fox reçoit une bourse du British Council pour étudier à la Slade School of Art de l'Université de Londres, suivie de deux années de travail indépendant à Florence et à Paris. De retour à Montréal, Fox débute sa carrière comme peintre et professeur au Centre Saidye Bronfman à la fin des années 1960, puis comme professeur au Département de peinture et de dessin de l'Université Concordia en 1970 jusqu'à sa retraite en 1998. Fox était membre du Groupe canadien des peintres et fut également nommé membre associé de l'Académie royale du Canada, mais il démissionna au bout d'un an en raison de son attitude conservatrice. Dans les années 1960, il reçoit une commande murale pour l'inauguration du Centre d'art de la Confédération à Charlottetown. Fox a vécu toute sa vie à Montréal et a également passé beaucoup de temps à Venise, en Italie, à partir du milieu des années 1970. A Venise, les peintures inspirées par l'Intimisme pour lesquelles il s'était fait connaître cèdent la place à de grandes toiles abstraites. La teinte, le ton et la personnalité de ses tableaux numérotés de cette période s'inspirent des riches couleurs des fresques vénitiennes et de la lumière méditerranéenne. Les œuvres de Fox sont conservées dans de nombreuses collections privées, corporatives et publiques, notamment la Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, la MacKenzie Art Gallery, la Art Gallery of Hamilton, le Museum London, le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, le Musée d 'art contemporain de Montréal.

Frances Ferdinands

First Name: Frances

Biography (English): Frances Ferdinands is a Canadian artist. She holds a Visual Arts degree from York University, an A.R.C.T. (Piano) from the Royal Conservatory of Music, and Education degree from University of Toronto. As a young Art student she was co-editor of Eclectic Eve: a Collection of Fifty Interviews with Toronto Women Artists. (Coach House Press, 1973). Noted American art historian and critic Lucy Lippard wrote, “Eclectic Eve is a book I’ve often used and much enjoyed. I wish other cities would do the same.” Ferdinands’ paintings are featured in two Artbooks: Rethinking Acrylic” (Northlight Books, 2008) and Acrylic Innovation (Northlight Books, 2010). She created the winning design for the 2017 Diwali commemorative coin and the 2019 Gold Multi-Cultural Coin “celebrating Diversity and Light” for the Royal Canadian Mint. Ferdinands has exhibited her work for over three decades across Canada and the United States and as far afield as New York, Paris, Bogota, London, and Honolulu. She is the recipient of many Arts Council Grants. Her paintings are held in private, corporate, and museum collections. In 2015 and 2017, Ferdinands returned to her homeland to be mentored in traditional arts and crafts studying temple mural painting, bobbin lace making, and mask making. This experience served to enrich her understanding of her Sri Lankan heritage and sense of place within it. The experience also spawned new work including the “Atomizer” collection – a series of 10 works which the ROM purchased. Her most recent paintings, the “Cultural Intersections” series hover between representation and abstraction and feature a mix of Western, Middle Eastern, and South Asian imagery and patterning. Colourful, active and densely layered they celebrate within a contemporary framework the long and overlapping traditions of decoration and craftsmanship that are the underpinnings of many non-western cultures. In early 2019 she was awarded a Chalmers Fellowship to travel to London England to study Islamic Patterning. The knowledge gained further expanded her focus on the exploration of visual cultural differences and cross-cultural fertilization and speaks of the “in-between” of varied social and cultural realities she inhabits.

Biography (French): Frances Ferdinands est une artiste canadienne. Elle est titulaire d'un diplôme en arts visuels de l'Université York, d'un A.R.C.T. (piano) du Conservatoire royal de musique et diplôme en éducation de l'Université de Toronto. En tant que jeune étudiante en art, elle a été co-éditrice de Eclectic Eve: a Collection of Fifty Interviews with Toronto Women Artists. (Coach House Press, 1973). La célèbre historienne de l’art et critique américaine Lucy Lippard a écrit : « Eclectic Eve est un livre que j’ai souvent utilisé et que j’ai beaucoup apprécié. J’aimerais que d’autres villes fassent de même. Les peintures de Ferdinands sont présentées dans deux livres d’art : Rethinking Acrylique » (Northlight Books, 2008) et Acrylic Innovation (Northlight Books, 2010). Elle a créé le dessin gagnant de la pièce commémorative de Diwali 2017 et de la pièce d'or multiculturelle 2019 « célébrant la diversité et la lumière » pour la Monnaie royale canadienne. Ferdinands expose son travail depuis plus de trois décennies à travers le Canada et les États-Unis et aussi loin que New York, Paris, Bogota, Londres et Honolulu. Elle est récipiendaire de nombreuses subventions du Conseil des arts. Ses peintures sont conservées dans des collections privées, d'entreprise et de musées. En 2015 et 2017, Ferdinands est retournée dans son pays natal pour suivre un encadrement dans les arts et l'artisanat traditionnels, étudiant la peinture murale des temples, la fabrication de dentelle aux fuseaux et la fabrication de masques. Cette expérience lui a permis d'enrichir sa compréhension de son héritage srilankais et de son sentiment d'appartenance à celui-ci. Cette expérience a également donné naissance à de nouvelles œuvres, notamment la collection « Atomizer », une série de dix œuvres achetées par le ROM. Ses peintures les plus récentes, la série « Cultural Intersections », oscillent entre représentation et abstraction et présentent un mélange d'images et de motifs occidentaux, moyen-orientaux et sud-asiatiques. Colorés, actifs et densément superposés, ils célèbrent dans un cadre contemporain les traditions longues et superposées de décoration et d'artisanat qui sont à la base de nombreuses cultures non occidentales. Début 2019, elle a reçu une bourse Chalmers pour se rendre à Londres, en Angleterre, pour étudier la structuration islamique. Les connaissances acquises ont élargi son attention sur l’exploration des différences culturelles visuelles et la fécondation interculturelle et parlent de « l’entre-deux » des réalités sociales et culturelles variées dans lesquelles elle habite.

André Fauteux

First Name: André

Biography (English): André Fauteux is a sculptor known for his abstract welded steel sculpture, which is related to Geometric abstraction. His modernist sculptures are also related to the Formalist ideas associated with Clement Greenberg. Fauteux sculptures are spare in form and do not replicate external subjects. The modernistic style is an international contemporary aesthetic. The sculptures include visual spaces, often with a rhythmic quality made of repeated elements and over-lapping sections. Examples of this are the group of pyramid galvanized sculptures made in 1976 (Triangle no. 1) and in pieces such as Verve 1975, Moro 1977, and Rosalino Roll, 1977. There are clearly connected elements within works such as Blacksmith 1974, Empire 1976, and Fountain of Irony 1987. Fauteux has also used other materials including rubber in a group of works made in Chicago, Illinois in the 1990s; such as La Salle Loop, of gum rubber and brass. Recent sculpture has been colored with multiple layers of polychrome color and iridescent pigments, on top of coated galvanized steel and with some elements which are dipped in chrome and therefore shiny. In 1975, The Condition of Sculpture, was held at the Hayward Gallery, London and included Fauteux. In 1976, he showed at the Dietcher O'Reilly Gallery, New York and in 1977, in Eleven Sculptors, Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, Montreal. In 1982–83 a major retrospective of his sculpture toured Canada's museums: André Fauteux Ten Years organized and originating at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, which included a catalog essay by Karen Wilkin. In 1988, he held a show at Gallery One, Toronto which was reviewed positively. In 1989, he did an installation at Ball State University Art Gallery, Muncie, Indiana and in 1990–1991, he showed work in solo shows in New York, Toronto, Chicago and Barcelona. Fauteux's art work is held in major public collections across North America and abroad in Spain. These collections include the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto and National Gallery of Canada.

First Name: Andy

Biography (English): Andy Fabo is an artist, art critic, independent curator, AIDS activist and art educator. In 2005 he was given a retrospective at the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, an exhibition that featured his work over thirty years in diverse media. His art has ranged from a series of mixed media paintings, Studs, exhibited in his 1979 A Space exhibition – a landmark for Queer Art in Canada – to his collaborative videos work created with Michael Balser his current evolution into digital media. He was a founding member of the nationally influential ChromaZone collective (1981-85), a group that revived the body as subject matter in painting and drawing, as well as reviving representational and social issues in those practices. Andy Fabo was first diagnosed as HIV+ in 1986, the year that the test was initially available in Canada. This was also the year that his lover, Tim Jocelyn, a textile artist and curator, died of HIV related infections. Tim Jocelyn and Andy Fabo collaborated on a landmark show, Chromaliving, that presented a mutated artists’version of a department store in 10,000 square feet of retail space on a prime retail street in Toronto and featured at least 300 artists, creating artist-made furniture, clothing, accessories and installations. In the mid-nineties he had his first AIDS-defining opportunistic infection, pneumocystis (carinii) jiroveci pneumonia, but was fortunate that the multi-drug protocol had been developed by the time his HIV infection had begun taking a physical toll. Andy Fabo was one of the first artist working in painting and drawing who responded to the AIDS pandemic, making several bodies of work that dealt with the body in crisis, loss and memorializing, exploring affect and the visceral in the light of catastrophic bodily experience. In some exhibitions, like Diagnosis (1991), he took a less subjective and more activist and informational approach to the AIDS crisis. A year after the demise of Tim Jocelyn, Andy Fabo met video artist Michael Balser and they began a series of collaborative media projects over a span of fifteen years. One of their first projects was a video work, Survival of the Delirious (1988), that won numerous awards including Best New Narrative at the Atlanta Film Festival, was highlighted at the International Kijkhuis Media Festival in Den Hague Holland and it is included in the Art Against AIDS anthology that VTape and Video Data Bank in Chicago co-produced in 1989.

Son art va d'une série de peintures en techniques mixtes, Studs, exposées dans son exposition A Space de 1979 – un point de repère pour l'art queer au Canada – à son travail vidéo collaboratif créé avec Michael Balser, son évolution actuelle vers les médias numériques. Il a été membre fondateur du collectif ChromaZone, un groupe d'influence nationale (1981-85), un groupe qui a relancé le corps comme sujet dans la peinture et le dessin, tout en faisant revivre les questions de représentation et sociales dans ces pratiques. Andy Fabo a été diagnostiqué séropositif pour la première fois en 1986, l'année où le test a été initialement disponible au Canada. C'est également l'année où son amant, Tim Jocelyn, artiste textile et conservateur, est décédé des suites d'infections liées au VIH. Tim Jocelyn et Andy Fabo ont collaboré à une exposition historique, Chromaliving, qui présentait une version artistique mutée d'un grand magasin dans 10 000 pieds carrés d'espace de vente au détail dans une rue commerçante prisée de Toronto et mettait en vedette au moins 300 artistes, créant des meubles fabriqués par des artistes. , vêtements, accessoires et installations. Au milieu des années 1990, il a eu sa première infection opportuniste définissant le SIDA, une pneumonie à Pneumocystis (carinii) jiroveci, mais il a eu la chance que le protocole multi-médicaments ait été développé au moment où son infection au VIH a commencé à faire des ravages physiques. Andy Fabo a été l'un des premiers artistes travaillant dans la peinture et le dessin à répondre à la pandémie du sida, réalisant plusieurs œuvres traitant du corps en crise, de la perte et de la mémorisation, explorant l'affect et le viscéral à la lumière d'une expérience corporelle catastrophique. Dans certaines expositions, comme Diagnosis (1991), il adopte une approche moins subjective et plus activiste et informationnelle de la crise du sida. Un an après le décès de Tim Jocelyn, Andy Fabo a rencontré le vidéaste Michael Balser et ils ont entamé une série de projets médiatiques collaboratifs sur une période de quinze ans. L'un de leurs premiers projets était une œuvre vidéo, Survival of the Delirious (1988), qui a remporté de nombreux prix, dont celui du meilleur nouveau récit au Festival du film d'Atlanta, a été mise en avant au Festival international des médias Kijkhuis à Den Hague, Pays-Bas et est incluse dans le Anthologie Art Against AIDS coproduite par VTape et Video Data Bank de Chicago en 1989. Elle fait partie des collections de musées du monde entier, notamment du Musée des beaux-arts du Canada et du MOMA à New York. Blood Risk, une œuvre vidéo du couple qui était une reconstitution du Sang d'un poète de Cocteau à la suite de la pandémie de sida, a également été largement diffusée à l'échelle internationale, notamment Artists Space à New York (1990).
