Allow Yourself This One Day is the final poem in Max's début pamphlet,
Modern Love, where he traces the year-long course of a love affair and
all its constituent parts: sex and sensuality, longing and loneliness,
desire and disappointment, heady beginnings and inevitable endings; in a
world dominated by high street brands, text messaging and social media.

Carla Scott Fullerton is deeply engaged with sculpture,
investigating materials process involved in construction and
deconstruction, those being old and new.
She questions how forms and formless structures sit together,
juxtaposing material forms through processes and playing with shapes
that relate to architecture.
She works with heavy industrial materials such as cement and steel,
allowing them to take on their own form. Devoid of their usual
restrictions and through the irregular and unpredictable processes of
pouring, the work is deliberately imperfect and free of the expected
forms governed by the traditional notions of architecture.
Based in Toronto, James Carl is one of
the city’s leading artists. He creates small- and large-scale
sculpture, made from a wide range of materials, from cardboard to
marble, to venetian blinds. In the early 1990s Carl entered the art
scene in Montreal by crafting expensive consumer goods (washing
machines, stoves) from inexpensive materials such as found cardboard,
only to place the finished sculptures back on the streets where their
materials were originally retrieved. In a subsequent body of work, Carl
carved replicas of disposable electronics out of marble – a traditional
sculptor’s material with connotations of permanence. Most recently, Carl
constructs large-scale, amorphous sculptures by intricately weaving
brightly coloured venetian blinds in a series titled jalousie.
Carl has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. Most recently, the first major survey of his work, entitled do you know what,
was presented at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at the University of
Toronto, the Cambridge Galleries Queen’s Square and the MacDonald
Stewart Art Centre in Guelph. Other recent shows include: jalousie at Galerie Heinz-Martin Weigand in Karlsruhe, Germany; negative spaces at Florence Loewy in Paris; plot at Vancouver’s Contemporary Art Gallery, and bottom feeder
at Mercer Union in Toronto. Carl earned his MFA from Rutgers
University and has degrees from McGill, the University of Victoria and
the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. His work is in public and
private collections across North America and Europe. Currently, Carl is
an Associate Professor of Studio Art at the University of Guelph.
