  • 'Prepared to Receive', Smithers Art Gallery, 2009. 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 of 'Prepared to Receive'.  The Smithers Art Gallery is a beautiful space. width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with several portraits of people painted to look like themselves, 'Red Dress' in the foreground and 'one step closer to the moon' on the floor. width:640;;height:480
  • Portraits of people painted to look like themselves.  Each sitter had a barrier cream applied 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
  • Another installation view. width:640;;height:480
  • The yellow object  is 'structure to support a narrow column of air'. I like the idea that it activates an infinite column of air that rests on the small, round plate at the top of the sculpture. width:360;;height:480
  • 'Rain' width:640;;height:480
  • Another view width:640;;height:480
  • 'Object painted to look like itself (ball)' on the left, 'Two Balls' in the centre (one ball is stretched overtop the other), and 'Overflow' on the right. width:640;;height:480
  • 'Objects painted to look like themselves (rocks)' width:640;;height:480
  • Installation view with 'beacon' in the foreground.  The flashlight turns on and off at a constant, and what I consider to be plaintive, pace. width:640;;height:480
  • "Music Box".  Open the lid of the giant metal box and the ballerina dances precariously on the edge. width:640;;height:480
