For this series of over thirty drawings, I used pressed botanical pieces salvaged from experiments with boiled prints to draw from, arranging them from top to end, creating an enclosed space. These contemplative drawings reminded me of staring into space at night when you see a layer of stars, then another and another. The endless perceivable space contained by the objects within our periphery is the gap of unknown, the divine matrix or the dream state where the musical overlaps with the tangible and in some small way, these pieces represent those possibilities.


Knock on Woods 2008


In 2008, Yvette Porter put out a Call for Artists as part of her ongoing international Knock on Woods project.
I was accepted to participate in the on-site residency on Mayne Island where I spent an afternoon gathering flora & fauna, cutting to size and capturing them in slide frames.
