I create constructions on site connecting traditional, natural, textural and everyday materials that are symbolic of the narrative. Currently I am working with light, and reflections integrating materials and documenting with photography. My work responds to my interaction in local landscape, travels and short residencies throughout Canadian urban/rural/suburban environments. I am exploring the carbon footprint local to unfamiliar, they are landscapes centred on the impact of the narrative, “identifying landscapes as cultural symbols”. The photographs titled Submerged are based on my family’s land and forest, installation of tree photographs submerged in moving water, light and tree reflections. I am interested with the possibilities of reflecting what is now verses what was, reflecting the interconnectedness of the forest along the Muskoka River that were flooded by hydro dams in the 1950’s.
