Home

Recently went back to my home town to visit my family, and take some photo’s of the farm house where i spent a few of my formidable years. Though it is currently empty and falling apart, this house still holds so many clear and present memories.

Process

I was down at my studio the other night, working on a monochromatic watercolour in Ochre Yellow. So far it’s looking great. I have 2 more steps to apply before it’s done, so I’m posting some pics from the process of putting it together.

Watercolour Painting

Yesterday I was down at my studio, trying out some new watercolour combos, and I’m happy with the results of my experimenting. It was a great afternoon down at the studio, and a nice way to spend my day off.

 

Preserves

Recently I spent the afternoon with Bren and collected footage of him canning in his kitchen, making curried apple chutney. I’m always interested in the process, and how things come to fruition, so this seemed like an ideal collaboration. I love working with people that I know, there is something so relaxed about the creative process, and the end result with Bren turned out better than I expected.

8 Years Later

Some screen shots from a film I finished entitled “8 Years Later”. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I submitted the film, and it’s been accepted, for distribution through Video Pool, a media arts center here in Winnipeg.

Synopsis:  An experimental documentary that abstracts the roads I travel on a daily basis. Tracking shots are layered on each other, turning documented images into a disorientating visual memory. Real audio from the tracking shots, contrast the layered images, disrupting the visual collage.

 

Short Film

Finished a short film, based around my mother’s poetry.  I’m so happy how everything turned out, and every time I see the title card I get all the good feelings.  I love collaborating with my mom, she’s a fantastic artist and always an inspiration.
