A mixed media installation
The exhibition Understory is an immersive installation that evokes the experience of standing amongst the forests of the British Columbian interior through the prism of memory.
Large-scale charcoal drawings of Lodgepole Pine, Ponderosa, Cedar and Birch trees are rendered on drafting film, sliced into strips, and suspended, looming above the viewer. Light and sound surround and animate the space. Piano notes, bird song and the sound of distant traffic are further layerings in the tension between art and nature, and in the intersection of the natural and manmade worlds.
