statement

The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.

This piece , a 5 o’clock shadow variation, 24x24” is one of three pieces available tonight at the Georgian Bay Centre for the Arts gala. @georgianbayarts has been an amazing undertaking that’s pretty much happened on the same timeline as the pandemic .

They’ve taken an old bingo hall in downtown Owen Sound and made it a creative centre with classes and studios galore despite being told by government bureaucrats at their beginning that they really should just close for two years.

I think there are still some tickets available. It’s definitely worth checking this fabulous place out !

This piece is up @diannawittegallery and in their shop of small pieces. It’s from my forest interiors series , I’ve been really enjoying the play of line and light and colours as I work through these ideas. I enjoy the way no matter large or small these pieces transport you to a different space.
