‘Marta’s Black OM’


‘Marta’s Black OM’-2015, 33″x 33″
This piece is one of a series of collaborations with well known Vancouver Artist, Marta Baricsa,
http://www.martabaricsa.com/
I love Marta’s work and we entered into a collaborative endeavour, at the suggestion of a curator friend of ours. I’m pleased to say I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Marta. I appreciate that she’s trusted me with her work…. knowing full well, that I’m going to manipulate it. This doesn’t surprise me, now that I know Marta. Her confidence in her work, is obvious in every piece.

‘Dino Park Study #14’


‘Dino Park Study #14’-2012, 40″x 40″

Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, is a very strange and beautiful place. It seems ironic that a place so “out of our time”, should cough up so many terrific fossils. It’s still very much a hostile environment… baked in the summer and frozen in winter. The fossils literally jump out of the ground, with the weathering going on.
I couldn’t reduce it to a postcard; I had to put a spin on it!

‘Library Glass Warp’

 


Library Glass Warp‘-2011, 20″ x 29.75″

Vancouver’s main library looks like a modern version of the Roman Coliseum. Of course, it’s surrounded by beautiful glass buildings, so I just decided to wrap them around it. The Library is also circular, so I stayed with the circular theme. This was a winter project. As usual;┬áthere was no snow… lucky to be living in “Lotus Land”!

‘Burrard Inlet with Blue Dot’


‘Burrard Inlet with Blue Dot’-2016, 45″x 90″
This is another piece, in my ‘HarbourFront in Alternate Reality’ Series.
The Pacific, blue sky and sun, made this winter day a piece of cake!
Vancouver embraces the 21st Century in a uniquely Canadian way.
It’s a very cool city, especially in the winter…

‘Cathedral Grove Portal’

Cathedral Grove Portal
‘Cathedral Grove Portal’-2015, 45″x90″
I love being in the forest but it has a dark side too. This piece mixes the beautiful with the unknown, which for me, are two of the best things about the forest. As long as it’s going well; it’s great.

Cathedral Grove is an Old Growth Forest on Vancouver Island.

“West Hastings’


‘West Hastings’-2017, 45″x75″
I actually shot the components for this piece in November, 2016. After a record number of rainy days this winter; I finally got around to working with it.

This park is little Refuge from The Towers. I find the Towers both beautiful and menacing. They’re efficient on one level and wasteful on another.

There’s no denying their beauty though…

‘Triple Insect Vision-Downtown’

‘Triple Insect Vision-Downtown’-45″x 45″, 2017

If we Humans had vision like this; no one could ever sneak up on anybody! No surprises. I guess that’s why it’s so hard to catch a fly… I’ve made this insect view more complicated than Mother Nature likely would, for esthetic purpose. Artist’s aren’t confined by Nature’s frugality… thankfully.

This is of course, Canada Place, where the cruise ships dock, in downtown Vancouver.
