“Here is a mindful world of enfolding layers; layers that might shelter hidden meaning, or some precious core. Holding fast to bone, fibre and hair. The outcome of precise observation and reflection.
Here are elusive endings and ties that bind. A recollection of lost surfaces; phantom past lives. The intricate beauty of material decay…bewitching degradations as if sketched from memory. Illuminating moments of clarity and light.
Here is a quiet dialogue between the artist and time. Chosen objects seem to speak and know together. Familial things with a secret language whispering through and between them like a connective thread. A progressive threading and unthreading of loss and discovery. Finding meaning and beauty in the discarded and the abject. Here there are offerings.”
Sarah Joyce, Curator/ Director, New Media Gallery, New Westminster, BC
“Reclamation marks a compelling entry-point into a dialogue about humanity’s relationship with the natural world. I was honoured to enter this space of contemplation in which sticks, stones and rusted nails, bound together in discorded unity, seemed to bring to life new possibilities for redemption.
