In this work, the land is a metaphor for interior psychic space. It is both magnificent, ever present, and in this painting a backdrop for broken canoes that are symbolic of the memories of dramatic breaks in life. For me, a place exists not only visually and in terms of touch, but also in a realm that defies words and pictures.
My desire is to convey more than just a visual record of these regions where I have walked and explored. I want to relate my feeling and sense of place; the feeling of being out there on the land.
