Another in the Library Series…
Library Study #11 is pushing data, information and patterns, to reveal themselves in yet another alternate form.
Since this building is circular, spheres seem appropriate…

‘Library Mirrorball’ is another in my 3 part Parliamentary Series. It’s hard to show all the details of a circular space… on a flat piece of paper. I continue to explore these possibilities on this beautiful library in Ottawa. Charged with doing the research and record keeping for Canada’s Parliament; this is the pinnacle of libraries in Canada. It’s very hard to do it justice in a 2D frame…

The inspiration for this piece is a playful and happy place. It’s actually called ‘CANADA PLACE’ in Vancouvers’ harbour.
If you’ve ever come to Vancouver on a cruise ship; you’ve docked here.
Since it’s Winter and i’m board…. i’m taking liberties with it … like a child’s dream, the night after their first visit… there.

Can this be Canada in the winter?
When I moved to Canada’s West Coast in 2008; I couldn’t believe this was winter and I was still in Canada. British Columbia’s Fraser Valley, just north of the American border, is a unique ecozone. This and other places like it on Canada’s West Coast are rare temperate rainforests that stay green all winter. I was moved, so I had to put some spin on it… so it wouldn’t be a postcard shot.

Taos Pueblo is another of those places that hold a special spirituality….part landscape, part human heritage.
The Pueblo’s graveyard inspired me to make this piece, which is mostly about escaping the bounds of physicality.
Created in 2006…

This piece was a result of my time spent at Ghost Ranch, Georgia O’Keeffe’s inspirational home in New Mexico. This place has a timeless beauty and carries a heavy spirituality, that only places occupied by hundreds of past generations have…
Being affected by the geologic and anthropological history of the place; I decided to invent my own imaginary future …event/space.

I made ‘Stretching Trees’ in 1998. It’s part of my infrared landscape series. I made a large mural for a show, which is sold but I’m going to print 2 Editions on paper. This dark and moody piece seemed appropriate to pull out for viewing at the beginning of winter. I used Konicas’ venerable 120 Infrared film and shot it on my 6×17 and 6×7 cameras. This film was very gritty and distinctive in its look. Of course it is not available now. Both content and medium are frozen in time.
