Published on the occasion of this first survey of Meryl McMaster’s work, Confluence features essays and an interview exploring the Ottawa artist’s stunning self-portraits selected from three major series: Wanderings, In-Between Worlds, and Ancestral. The intriguing, unbounded identities McMaster imagines and records with her camera posit subjectivity as fluid, always in process, and even opaque.
