A shared exhibit of works
An upcoming exhibit with mixed-media artist Diana Durrand starting September 6.
The show will highlight select images from past and present projects by both artists, in an informal small grouping format, from the early 1970’s to present day.
Happy to contribute to this year’s CNIB Eye Appeal Art Event and Auction.
“Eye Appeal is one of the most anticipated fundraisers for the CNIB on Vancouver Island. Attendees will experience fine dining, breath-taking art, and the opportunity to bid on many other unique items.
Through the help of over 200 locally and internationally renowned artists, as well as various sponsors and volunteers, the CNIB Eye Appeal Art Event raises money to fund programs right here on Vancouver Island. Each ticket provides one work of art, access to a live and silent auction as well as gourmet food and beverages for the evening.”
I’ve donated this piece for part of their fundraising efforts: ‘Tree Bones’, 24×30″ framed. Archival pigment ink print—one of my Diana plastic lens images from the Modern Landscape and Travels with Diana series.

Upcoming exhibit at Little Fernwood Gallery November 10-29th. Opening reception Nov 12, 2-4pm.
The Rock Bay and surrounding neighbourhoods is on the outskirts of Victoria and is home to an eclectic and diverse population—from chic waterfront condos to light industry, low-budget motels, family shelter accommodations and artist studios. It is an area in transition and a place of shifting interests and transient populations. And though there are any number of people who live and work in this area, one seldom encounters the denizens and co-workers. Instead one is confronted by their passing, through discarded objects, graffiti, messages and the ever increasing number of fences and barbed wire to presumably keep some safe and others out.
These images were produced over a period of about 18 months while wandering the streets during my lunch break from a local printing firm, wondering about the stories behind the visual clues and backdrops of this area. Many of these sights and scenes would last less than a day, others for a few days, to be replaced by new scribblings, new businesses, buildings and fences.
This collection is an attempt to document these fleeting and transitory narratives of this disparate landscape; many of these ‘found’ objects and buildings now exist only within these images.
