KWOMAIS, A PLACE OF VISION
Medium: Ceramic tile mosaic
Community awareness blossoms in many ways.
To the left you will see a mosaic which is installed in the entrance of Kwomais Point Park, Surrey, B.C. This mosaic references the earth, air, fire, and water through the forms of a cedar tree, eagle, coyote, and whale, all indigenous to the Kwomais park and surrounding sea.
For a deeper look visit the City of Surrey site here or view a slide show of the design, fabrication, and installation.
THE TORSO PROJECT
Title: “Elemental Man”
Medium: store mannequin, acrylic paint
We are made of earth, air water and fire. Elemental. All minerals, plants and animals are made of the four essential elements also. This we have in common. During the installation on the beach, as the tide comes in, each painted band of an element could possibly be submerged. I wonder what sensation will occur within us as the incessant power of the moon pulls the waters constantly higher reaching towards the shoreline. Will the unrelenting tide bring loss, regret, cleansing, or rejoicing? Will the Elemental Man be drowned or baptized by the sea? Click for Z.inc Artist Collective
NEWTON POP UP
Title: "Generation GMO"
(Dahlia, Salmon, Raven, Young Girl)
Medium: Acrylic on twelve interchangeable 24x24" canvases
The Generation GMO” series, at first glance, may appear humorous, but the genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in our daily food reveal another story. Playful imaginings of different species of plants and animals with altered DNA birth new creatures, as seen in this ‘mix and match’ of canvases
