Bowen Island Arts Council Exhibition

It is great to be exhibiting new works this summer in my home community of Bowen Island, BC. In the Cove: past and present Bowen Island is a joint exhibition with the Bowen Island Museum and Archives running from June 22 - July 17, 2016. The opening reception is Saturday June 25, 7-9pm.

Focusing on themes of collecting, recording and preservation I have created a new body of works on paper portraying the present condition of the Davies Orchard Cottages on Bowen Island. Using photographs from the museum archives as inspiration, my prints simultaneously reflect the past and present by referencing the aesthetic quality of the historic images but using current documentation of the island and new technology to create the works.
