Riverwalk II

Prints of each image in this series are available for purchase in limited editions on archival paper.

When preparing for this show, I took on three challenges. The first was to create work that would be ‘local’ in theme. The second was to explore a different medium. The third was to ‘do a 180’ – diverge from the abstract mode I have been exploring these past few years and return to representation. Why take on these kinds of challenges? It’s a bit like taking a cold shower: I wake up, practise new skills, and challenge myself to see things in new ways.

The river that runs through Almonte, ON Canada belongs to all of us, and to none of us. It is precious and powerful. Of late, the future of Almonte’s Mississippi has been the focus of much emotion, discussion, and controversy. Though it has been difficult, it has forced the members of this community to listen to what the river is telling us, to ask ourselves what it means to us, and to imagine what we want it to ‘look like’ in the future. Important questions. It is essential that the solution benefit the residents of Almonte for years to come.
