About the Natural Transitions series:

Natural Transitions 08 is part of an abstracted landscape series, created in monotype, that explores the ever-changing transition between water and land.  I find myself mesmerized by the relationship playing out along the shore's edge moment by moment;  

 

water rolls in 

        water rolls out 

  never the same path twice 

                 subtly changing the land 

  

I choose the medium of monotype to express my fascination because this artistic process creates a one-of-a-kind atmospheric print with ethereal qualities that captures the elusive relationship of water meeting land.

Artist Statement: 

This monotype college represents the six basic geographic regions of Canada: Canadian Cordillera, Arctic, Prairies, Lowlands, Appalachians and Canadian Shield. I tried to distil the regions down to what I considered their simplest characteristics then set them against a monotype backdrop of blue to represent our oceans, rivers and lakes. The dark lines running through the piece point to the interconnections in our land: people to the land, people to the water and people to each other. This great land is the stage from which our Canadian stories are told.
