Shani Mootoo Art

Canadian, Irish, b. 1957
Shani Mootoo is an accomplished writer, filmmaker, painter and photographer who has been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. She earned a BFA from the University of Western Ontario, and an MA in English from the University of Guelph. Her most recent novel, Polar Vortex, has been shortlisted for the 2020 Giller Prize. She is the recipient of a Dr. James Duggins Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Award, the Writers’ Trust Engel Findley Award,and has been awarded an honorary Doctorate of Letters from Western University. In her artworks, Mootoo explores the idea of dislocation, identity, belonging: “…identity, like perspective, is inevitably shifting and multi-faceted.” Mootoo's paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions locally and internationally, most notably at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Queen’s Museum in NYC, the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, and at the Venice Biennale. She lives in Southern Ontario, Canada. Her videos include “English Lesson”, “Wild Woman in The Woods” and “Her Sweetness Lingers,” and have been screened in film and video festivals and art exhibitions locally and internationally, including at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

Sharon's Sunroom 1/5 - A photograph of carefully curated collected items
By Shani Mootoo
Located in Bloomfield, ON
Known for her photographic portraits of interior spaces, Shani Mootoo reveals the curious and often emotive personal narratives of her subjects.  This giclee print by Shani Mootoo is editioned, 1/5. The work is matted, framed. Unframed size is 21 x 31.5 inches. It is also available in two other sizes, 12 x 28 (framed 21 x 27 inches, edition of 10, $2,000); and 16 x 24 inches (25 x 33 inches framed, edition of 8, $2,600.). Mootoo describes how this image was created: "I was at my printer's studio working on a body of photographs when we were interrupted by a customer who needed his attention for a few minutes. I agreed on a pause so that that customer could be accommodated, and my printer suggested I roam the garden, as there was a lot to see there. Just before the exit to the garden was a room crammed with pastel knick-knacks. A glass sliding door stood closed between me and this room, which seemed to be a combination of very special private space and a storage room. I immediately had the sense that I was seeing a photograph waiting to be taken and, as I had my Sony Rx100m7 camera around my neck, I ran back to my printer and asked if I could go into the room. He generously said, 'By all means, go wherever you'd like".  On entering, there wasn't much room to negotiate, but I was struck by the carefully...
