Belonging to the Land

IMAGINED AND REMEMBERED LANDSCAPES

⁠Moments of solitary stillness in a wild and natural place have a way of making me feel more whole - of belonging to something bigger, rather than that something belonging to me. This is a feeling I remember first noticing when I was a kid growing up on the farm in Saskatchewan, which is maybe why these moments always feel like coming home to me.⁠
⁠This, in essence, explains the concept behind my landscape work. I hope that for you they capture the same energy I feel in those magical moments when I am belonging to a place and feeling at home with the Earth.⁠

 

My work in the subject of the landscape is ongoing.  My goal is to continue to further abstract how I represent the landscape by digitally enhancing cropped sections of small paintings I have made and re-creating the enhanced versions in large scale analogue work.  To see more images from my current 100-day landscape study project and further abstractified/enhanced work in progress, please visit my Instagram profile.

In the spirit of reconciliation, I acknowledge that I live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
