Hearts and Homes
It is now the final countdown to my solo exhibition at Art Alchemy Gallery called “Hearts and Homes”, featuring work I have completed within the past two years. When writing the press release for this show I was reflecting on the fact that much of the inspiration for my work comes from all the time I have spent in the trails near my home, by the Puntledge River. Eventhough it is a natural area (much of it owned by BC Hydro), on one walk you might see an old moss covered car, a discarded couch, the new and old powerhouse and penstock, a gas pipeline not to mention hydro dams and fish hatcheries – it is a wilderness area with an unmistakably large human imprint.
When I am walking or biking in this area it causes me contemplate the relationship (or often non-relationship) humans have with nature – a theme that is consistent in my work.
I hope that you will be able to see the show. It opens Saturday, March 9th at 7pm at Art Alchemy
