The Many Faces of Janusz

Writing this article really solidified why I like to write for Arts (and Entertainment): you don't have to be an expert to appreciate it.

I started this article before even going to the exhibit. Quite simply I wrote down the questions I had about the collection and made it my perogative to find the answers. My questions weren't elaborate. They were 'Who is this guy?' and 'Why should I go look at a bunch of pictures of him?'

Once I visited the exhibt, writing was easy. The last time I was so excited about an article for the Varsity was for my review of the ROM's Diamond Exhibit (also in this portfolio).

As always the title links to the article printed in the Varsity. But this time I'm giving a visual sneak peek:

Michael Merrill, Janusz in Bedlam, 1984, acrylic on canvas. Collection of Janusz Dukszta.

A survival guide to the new semester

The latest article I got published. Just goes to show you that sarcasm can make any article fun - no matter how lame the topic. Many thanks to my friend Hope for proofreading, contributing and staying up with me as I finish :)
