curios

March 5, 2018

A while ago, I worked on a series for Toronto Life, where I visited people’s homes and asked them questions about their collections. What inspired the collection? What does the collection reveal about them? Where do they keep their one hundred panamas? Which was the first Victorian cameo they ever purchased? How many mid century salad tongs do they own? I found the topic fascinating. So when I happened upon painter, Greg Irvine’s South Melbourne home, I was kind of gobsmacked. From tortoiseshell combs to celluloid bangles to bamboo furnishings, every room is adorned with some whimsical collection. Watch this video –– it’s quite a delight to see how artfully, meticulously Irvine curates his collections.
