Up Coming Residency: November 2020  Sointula Art Shed

Last fall I  launched exhibition of new work at the Kootenay Gallery of Art under the title, Pan-dulum: a Call to Unreason.  Curator: Maggie Shirley

A project that I have been working on for a few years which explores the psychological nature of anxiety and its manifestation as a pendulum of emotion/mind states between panic and desire. The work shown in the gallery included paintings, drawings and sculptures.

Pan-dulum: A Call to Unreason is on exhibit at Gallery 2, in Grand Forks, BC  in February – April, 2019 .  Curator, Tim Van Wijk

The work was sponsored by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance through a major project grant. Check out more images of the work in the Pandulum section of this site.

Gallery 2 invite 2019

I had the joy of speaking with Sherly Mackay down at CBC this winter. Our conversation is on the March 23rd edition of her North by NorthWest radio show. We spoke about the process of creating Pan-dulum and where the work is headed.
