THE STORYBOOKS HAVE BEEN UNFAIR
READ ARTIST STATEMENT
FOUND DRAWING PROJECT
This is an ongoing project for which I have been collecting landscapes rendered in both pencil and watercolour on paper. Onto each landscape I paint or draw an animal or group of animals into the scene. I attempt to blend the creatures as seamlessly as possible with the existing landscape. Despite this effort, they do not belong. They are out of context and out of scale to their surroundings. A narrative must be created to explain their presence, a narrative created by the viewer.
This project was made with the support of the BC Arts Council.
