Digital Media

Today I work primarily with photographs as my raw material.  The digital constructions that emerge are made up of many bits and pieces of photographic material. The excitement of working digitally comes from the freedom it affords. Experimentation is integral to a process that allows me to manipulate and recombine elements in a myriad of ways. Creating digitally holds the same fascination for me that molding clay afforded years ago. Both have an element of surprise and unpredictability. Both can be molded in an endless number of ways to produce a synergy that is both controlled and unexpected.

Esther

Photography

Height: 22” Width: 28“

Esther is a woman that I met in Uganda. She had just had her hair done and when I complimented her, she threw her head back and laughed. I snapped the photo and it perfectly captures not only her beauty but the vivid colors of Uganda. I blurred the clothesline and revealed the motorcycle to distinguish its importance from the rest of the background.

Height: 16” Width: 36“

I go to Hornby Island every year and it never gets old. The rock formations, the light, the colours, the wild life all inspire me time after time. I love it in the winter when the island has few people and the beaches are deserted. On this particular day at Heron Rocks, I had fun photographing my shadow against the rocks.

Olympic Pillage

Olympic Pillage

Digital Media

Height: 38” Width: 36“

Olympic Village is representative of a city where construction occurs at an unrelenting rate with little attention paid to quality, architecture or overall aesthetics within the landscape. Walking into Olympic Village involves navigating building sites that stretch from Cambie St and eastward. The fancy names and promises of a perfect lifestyle do little to change the overall impression of crowded, unattractive buildings which seem to have an expiration date written all over them.

Sword Fern

Height: 52” Width: 52“

Sword Fern is one of the most beautiful and magical trails in the park. Deep into the trail, there is a tree stump covered in very bright moss with this semicircular piece of wood protruding from it. The tree looks like a castle and the piece of wood like a little shrine sitting in the tree. I represented the ‘castle’ at the top of the piece.
