Too Old for the Draft, 2013
Myfanwy Macleod found a Xerox of this poem in an old Playboy magazine while doing research for her series of Dorothy Stratten origami works. The authorship of the poem is unknown.
Macleod is interested in the way an image or a concept can be altered, transformed or even given new meaning when its context or form is changed. A wry sense of humour pervades her work as it draws on Modernism’s iconic moments and delves into popular culture and the vernacular. She is the 2013 recipient of the Mayor’s Award and is having a retrospective exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in the Spring of 2014.
