Sarah Troper
Happy New Year

09.01.09 – 09.02.09

Sarah Troper works with metal to re-create familiar objects as a way of highlighting and making permanent the experiential. Happy New Year examines the party hat, an object that is inherently linked to celebration. Troper’s hats, replicated in steel and frozen in varying states of use, confront the viewer with stages of revelry and bathos.

Sarah Troper, received a BFA from NSCAD University, an MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz and spent three years as an artist-in-residence in the Metal Studio at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. Sarah has exhibited extensively in Canada and internationally and has received awards and honours from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Crafts Council, the State University of New York at New Paltz and NSCAD University. Sarah lives and works in Toronto and teaches in the Jewellery Studies program at George Brown College.
