  • The entrance to 'Prepared to Receive' as installed in the Penticton Art Gallery in 2009.  The bent antenna to the left of the lettering is the piece 'prepared to receive' after which the show was named.  The antenna is out there openly ready to receive anything that might be incoming.<br /> width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with 'sleeping dog four times', 'insulator' and several portraits of people painted to look like themselves.  For these portraits the sitters applied a barrier cream to their faces and necks.  I then mixed acrylic paints to match their skin and lip tones etc. and painted their portraits directly on to their faces. width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with portraits and 'rain', a hard hat drilled through with many tiny holes. width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with portraits, 'object painted to look like itself (rock)', 'device for listening to snow' in the foreground and 'engaged' on the back wall. width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with 'engaged' on the back wall and various 'objects painted to look like themselves'. width:640;;height:480
  • 'F  RD'.  These are letters from the hood of an old Ford pickup.  They are placed on the wall at the same height from the ground and the same distance apart as they used to be on the actual truck.  The owner of the wrecking company assured me that he could find me a full set, but I thought the missing 'O' communicated a great deal about our love of, and uneasy relationship with, cars. width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with 'red coats' on the back wall.  One is an actual red coat and the other is a white coat painted red. width:634;;height:480
  • The white object on the plinth is 'red dress'.  It's a red dress that has been painted white and rolled up and painted over many times until it became a white sculpture with all of it's 'red dressness' contained within. width:640;;height:480
  • Another installation view. width:640;;height:480
  • The yellow object in the foreground is 'structure to support a narrow column of air'. I like the idea that it activates an infinite column of air that rests on this small, round plate. width:640;;height:480
  • 'Beacon'.  The flashlight blinks on and off constantly at what I like to think of as a plaintive pace.  It was placed in a glass doorway of the gallery 'beaconing' silently out in to the world. width:640;;height:480
  • Off. width:360;;height:480
  • On. width:360;;height:480
