acrylic on canvas / 72" x 82" x 1.5"
This painting to me is an allegory for my time at Emily Carr. I’ve learned that confusion is often a good thing; to have doubt is to have an open mind. I’ve questioned what it is to be a painter, what it is to create, and what it is to see. In this painting the apparition of the viewer is being confronted by the reality of its own materiality. I’ll always be interested by the power that pictures have to invoke another’s reality.
