Shary Boyle is well-known for her bold, fantastical explorations of the figure. Highly crafted and deeply imaginative, her multi-disciplinary practice mines the social history of porcelain figurines, animist mythologies and folk art forms to create a symbolic, polotically charged language uniquely her own. Boyle splits her time between her Toronto studio and collaborative projects with artists and musicians from the Arctic to Asia. 

Boyle works across diverse media, including sculpture, painting, installation and performance, and is exhibited and collected internationally. Shary Boyle represented Canada with her project Music for Silence at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. In 2015 se performed at the Luminato Festival and the National Gallery of Canada and in 2016 exhibited in Ceramix: Ceramics and art from Rodin to Schutte, organized by the Bonnefantenmuseum in the Netherlands and touring to Cité de la Ceramique in Sevres, France. In 2017, Boyle curated and participated in the Esker Foundation-produced touring exhibition Earthlings, while her sculptures were featured in South Korea's Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale and the Suzanne Bierderberg Gallery exhibit Slipper in Amsterdam, NL. Shary Boyle's first public art commission will be installed in Spring 2018 at the Gardiner Ceramic Museum in Toronto.
