The first body of work in this period relates to my exhibit at the Surrey Art Gallery, “Crossing Boundary”, exploring the daily migration of Vancouver’s crow population to their communal roost. Also here are works from my ongoing collaborative history with poet Rishma Dunlop as well as series called “Evening Fields”, inspired in part by an encounter with Barnett Newman’s painting, “The Voice” at MOMA, NY.
