i’m jealous of gathie falk


Around eight years ago I walked into a room at the National Gallery in Ottawa and saw this papiermâché dress (displayed with other similar pieces) and was instantly inspired jealous. Canadian art icon Gathie Falk is now 81 and she’s still making art… if that’s not inspiring, I don’t know what is.

    It’s great to see someone else loving Gathie Falk’s work. I first saw a show of her pieces at the Vancouver Art Gallery when I was a BFA student at UVIC a million years ago. I’d forgotten about her until I saw this on your site. Thanks!

    I love her work. These dresses had a huge impact on me, even though it was years ago. I’ve loved her ever since, and I’m happy to have jogged your memory ; )
