Exhibition at One-On-One Gallery, Medicine Hat, March 2 - March 27, 2018
The exhibition comprised a series of large-scale representations of humans, animals, clothing and nakedness — pinned directly to the walls of the gallery.
The installation explored relationships between clothing and nakedness, and brought together seemingly unrelated subjects, as if asking viewers, what is the link between two bathers, a helmeted man, a wrapped infant, sleeping pigs, and children wearing gas masks?
I do not wish to construct works that are literal, but to express something of the awe and the anxiety that I feel in a world that is increasingly chaotic and uncertain.
I wish to create works that reflect not only the unique physicality of my subjects (human or animal,) but also their dignity and the singular gravity they seem to project.
