‘Avatar Old Growth Wheels’

‘Avatar Old Growth Wheels’-2016, 45″x 90″

Avatar Old Growth Forest is on Vancouver Island, on the Pacific side, near Port Renfrew. It’s a small patch that has escaped the chain saws. It’s hard to believe… but 9000 hectares (over 22,000 acres) of Old Growth Temperate RainForest is still cut, every year on Vancouver Island.

I can’t do justice to the beauty or primal vibe of this place, so I attempt to evoke, just a little of the mystery and symmetry of the place…
