statement: the perimeter series




The summer of 2009 Emma Lake Artist Workshop was the catalyst for this visual opus. The experience of two weeks immersion in such an historical and creative artistic environment was extremely enriching. In addition to the works created on site, I came away with sufficient resources to develop a series devoted entirely to my impressions of time spent in this northern Saskatchewan artists' retreat. Working in my studio allowed the imagery to be altered and imbued with layers of memory and sensations through the manipulation of the painting medium. The work moved from being a direct representation to one that captured the essence of my journey to Emma Lake.
