I am thrilled to announce my "News Blues" solo exhibition at the Sivarulrasa Gallery in Almonte. This show begins July 7 and will be on until August 11. Please join me at the gallery on July 15th from 2pm to 4pm.

In this body of work, the I am drawing on observations from life over the past four years, in particular, the pandemic. The title of the show “News Blues” derives from the feeling of watching from a distance as events passed by. Participation not being a viable option, we sat back and absorbed events as they were presented from third parties. This unwilling restriction forced me to rely on images and events that presented themselves in my local neighbourhood, the news, and my memory.
I am preoccupied by the intuitive journey that paint takes me on with its colour and texture when working with layers that can be revealed through scratching back, rubbing away or lifting, to bring back the history of the previous layers.
