Paintings

Ediface 3, Acrylic on canvas, 12"x12"
This a recent series of paintings I've been working on exploring architectural forms. These constructions are formidable with their blank facades and yet they give just enough purchase to be explored. Is there an entrance? Can you climb to the top? We relate to architecture by comparing our own bodies to these man-made structures and it's the physical reaction as opposed to an intellectual one that intrigues me.

Mine Own

This is a larger piece that stands on the floor. I built it thinking of Rapunzel's tower and while she may have wanted to find a way out I often feel that having a tower of one's own would in fact be a way to escape.

Fiefdoms

These sculptural drawings, as I like to call them were done as part of a project called '100 Drawings.' I did indeed make 100 of them in various sizes and shapes. This is just a few of them that make up part of my kingdom.

Land Art

I recently took a class exploring Land and Environmental Art and was so inspired by the work done using materials found in wild places. This is a composition I arranged on the beach while walking on Chestermans Bay in Tofino, BC. It is really one of the most beautiful spots on the island and it's wide open spaces have a powerful affect on the psyche.

Marking Time

I often post my photography on various social media sites but as it's time to update to my blog, I thought I'd add some here as well. While it may be morbid to take pictures of dead things in a way it is also exactly why we are all so snap-happy - to stop time. These things in front of the lens are transient and one day the photo may be the only physical evidence of their (our) existence.

Been A Long, Long Time

It's been awhile but here's some work I've been doing recently. This is part of a sculpture I'm working on. It's comprised of the ordinary detritus of my life that I am taking apart and rebuilding to create a new viewpoint.
