Solo Exhibition | Canada House Gallery, Banff Alberta | Artist's Reception: April 16, 2016
An exploration of the architectural qualities of landscape, in terms of structure, strength, line, and geometry, and how architecture relates to its surroundings, the landscape. Our terminology of mountains especially uses architectural language ie. spire, castle, buttress, fortress, column, cathedral and so on, and it feels natural to use these terms when experiencing the mountains. The theory of Prospect and Refuge is a secondary theme of many of the works, that humans are most comfortable when they have the capacity to observe (prospect) without being seen (refuge,) - being protected while having a view. The exhibition will be comprised of both landscapes and architecture, and a small number of still lifes in architectural settings.
