Odds and Ends – 29 June 2015

With the success of my recent school painting project, I am re-focusing my efforts on single buildings within an empty void. Exploring how the world may not be to our liking, and how we try and block out those unpleasant realities.

At the moment, my principle source of inspiration is artist, Tony Scherman. The campus art gallery has a very nice study, about 3 feet by 3 feet. I find the square shape particularly appealing.

Over the past week, I been searching for small houses in West Hamilton that are very similar to each other, but still maintain their uniqueness.

I envision a series of house paintings, likely between 12-20 pieces.

In addition to houses, I started a painting that deals with a car. Again, I hope to create a series that contains 12-20 pieces.


Odds and Ends – a weekly review of bits and pieces of activity and information that sums up an artist life.

Inspired by architecture and landscapes, my art explores our relationship to place, memory and identity. As a mid career artist, my art practice includes: painting, murals, short films, and sound art.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
