With my series of kayaks and stone, I imagine a time long past, a distant remove from modern constructs. These stylized works, effectively geological constructions, are etched and eroded by the forces of wind and water. And the scarred surfaces of the vessels allude to their continued use as a “workhorse of the seas”.
I come in contact with such remarkable stones while camping, canoeing, trekking or snowshoeing in the vast wilderness. These sculptures are a testimonial to my deep connection to the land, an homage to the wild places and myriad waterways of northern Canada.
