My current body of work presents “landscapes of consciousness” from a month’s immersion in high Arctic geography. I visited Pond Inlet, Grise Fjord and areas of Devon, Philpotts and Ellesmere Islands as well as coastal Greenland.
Paintings reference the artist’s “being” in the natural world and encounters with those for whom the high north is both wild and home. My paintings are reflective of my personal experience, always aware that indigenous voices must be heard to tell their own stories and history.
My work tells the story of a visitor, a sojourner to a remote and sublime region of Canada. My purpose is to highlight this region and the themes of “wilding and cultivation.” These themes invite the viewer to unpack moral,aesthetic and legal relationships to the land and the people for whom it is sustenance and spirit: landscape and home.
The wild is evident in the land and sea. Cultivation is the sea as resource and garden.
Wilding and cultivation go hand in hand in this delicately balanced environment. My work explores these dualities to raise awarenessof this fragile and beautiful part of our country through explorations of light, earth and sea.
