My paintings are landscapes to enter and explore, to decode. They are challenges to understand the meanings behind combinations of words, symbols and colors. They are invitations to investigate the significance of associations between juxtaposed elements and phrases, simply put dreams. Motivated by the challenge of deﬁning vast expanses of time through layers, I collect materials. Gathered throughout time, by myself and others: a news clipping from the Moon Landing my grandmother saved, a ﬂyer from a show I saw in Toronto, or a ticket stub from a movie with someone I loved. Materials layered like the rings of trees, compressing time through a collage technique I developed using acrylic paint and a variety of stains, glazes, dirt, ash on wood panels and parts of weathered barns and houses. The struggle to express my most inner thoughts and ideas, the materials, the land have awakened a vision of eternity in me.
