What I Wear


Rating: NNNNN

WHO — Toronto artist Winsom.

WHEN — Tuesday, noon.

WHERE — Timothy’s (618 Yonge).

CLOTHES — “I’m addicted to very bright colours, but for the last year I’ve been wearing white to keep me conscious of the things I do. Whether I’m wearing white or colours, I select clothes that are comfortable, soothing and keep me spiritually balanced. My dress and head wrap were made by my cousin Diane McCalla, who is a seamstress. One of my bracelets was a gift from a friend, my watch is a good old Timex from the Bay (176 Yonge, 861-9111, and others), and the rest are from World Art and Decor (803 Queen West, 504-6340). My silver necklace is from the Omega Centre (29 Yorkville, 975-9086), and the others are spiritual beads from a priestess. These earrings are from Morningstar, my anklet is from Frida Craft Stores (39 Front East, 366-3169), and I bought my Birkenstocks at a discount store on Yonge.”

HAIR — “Aeyenba Hair Salon (477 Richmond West, 703-5494).”

STYLE — “Spiritually funky.”

UPCOMING — “I’ve got solo shows currently on exhibit in Chatham and St. Catharine’s, and Kindred Spirits,a two-person show, is touring U.S. galleries through 2002. I’ll be screening a new video at V-Tape on September 23, and Draw It Black, a book on 10 black Toronto artists that I helped produce, has just been published and is available at A Different Booklist (746 Bathurst, 538-0889).”
