From Floating Universe Series
“My earliest work was defined by the parameters of expressionist figuration, with its embrace of loose, dreamlike imagery. In this series I returned to ambiguous anatomical, biological and mechanical forms that prod the unconscious to seek out subliminal connections.”
From 2.9 Billion Birds Series
“The birds on view here are part of an ongoing project by that was begun in 2019 by artist Dawna Rose and myself, in response to research showing that almost 3 billion North American birds have vanished since 1970. We use post-consumer waste to highlight the habitat loss, climate change, and general eco-system collapse that has caused a decline in even the most common species. I try to paint birds that I see during the course of my daily life, the ones that we may easily take for granted.”
From The Dawson City Series
“This work came from a period of transition as I moved my life from New York City to Saskatoon and explored my new surroundings, especially the tumbling down, dilapidated farms and homesteads. I wondered, did the family just get up from the table mid-meal and walk out onto the prairie? In an artist residency in Dawson City, I came to realize how this reflected my own experience, leaving behind the places and objects that shape a home and a life.”
