  1. Actually I Have a Lot More to Say About Picture Books

    09 Apr 2018

    by Sylvie Schwartz Martha Speaks, written and illustrated by Susan Meddaugh. Maybe it’s because the prospect of finishing undergrad in two more weeks is throwing me back to my childhood, but since my last editorial I realized that I actually have a lot more to say about picture books. As I…


  2. My First Love in Picture Books

    26 Mar 2018

    by Sylvie Schwartz Like that of many people, my early introduction to art was through picture books. At 22 years old with a full English literature major under my belt, the books I read every night as a preschooler are still among my very favourites. I find them to be…


  3. Thoughts on Marcus Harvey

    20 Feb 2018

    by Sylvie Schwartz I’ve got complicated feelings about Marcus Harvey. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, it’s because he’s probably the least known of the Young British Artists. He’s best known for his large-scale portrait of the Moors Murderer Myra Hindley composed of children’s handprints. He also recently made…


  4. My Antikythera Wreck

    08 Feb 2018

    by Sylvie Schwartz I’ve spent most of my time at McGill studying contemporary art, but lately I find myself imagining the Antikythera wreck. The Antikythera wreck was a shipwreck that happened sometime in the first century BCE, and as such everything that I know about it comes from newspaper articles…


  5. Art that I Think About in the Winter

    29 Jan 2018

    by Sylvie Schwartz It’s the end of January. I don’t know about you but for me there’s not that much that’s relatable besides winter and feeling like you’re dying inside. In that spirit - and because it would be depressing to make a list of artworks that makes me feel…


  6. A Thank You to My First Art Teacher

    16 Jan 2018

    by Sylvie Schwartz My elementary school art teacher is retiring this year after a lot of years of teaching. He’s been working at my local elementary school since my oldest brother, now 29, started there sometime in the mid-90’s. My other brother thought he was a giant. He had a…


  7. Remedios Varo, I Love You

    20 Nov 2017

    by Sylvie Schwartz We are now in the second half of November. It’s cold without snow (the only fun part about the cold), windy, and I have homework to do. Brainstorming essay after essay, writing visual analysis after visual analysis - in my most refined academic terms - I sometimes get…


  8. Grieving with Laurie Anderson

    06 Nov 2017

    by Sylvie Schwartz Like many angst-ridden early teens with access to a solid music library and the Internet, I found Laurie Anderson (artist, musician, and talented storyteller), through Lou Reed, her husband - a poet, student of the poet and short story writer Delmore Schwartz, friend of Andy Warhol, and front man…


  9. Gauguin, What Do I Do About You?

    23 Oct 2017

    by Sylvie Schwartz I recently went to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, where I was confronted with one of my favourite paintings that I’ve loved since I first started studying art several years ago: Gauguin’s Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? It was the…
