Here’s an idea I’ve been thinking about for awhile, what if I made more flowerburst pieces in different colours and made it an even larger installation. Sounds like a good project to work on while I’m thinking about something new.
There are around one hundred blue pieces in the original installation, and I’ve shown it twice this way. I like the idea of it becoming larger with multiple colours. Last week I painted some paper with yellow and red acrylic ink and started cutting more pieces. I have close to twenty of them already.
I don’t have a deadline or anything for this. I wanted to get working on something again and this was the project that drew me the most. It’s my version of crocheting granny squares.

I had a small pile of screen prints, created at the end of my residency at The Leeway Studio, which needed to be transformed into more pyramids. And now they are, which brings the number of my tiny pyramid army up to around one hundred and fifty.
I will be showing these in October at Emily Carr in the library window. I need to come up with how I’m going to do it, and what other work to include.

These are process photos of paper cut work I created this week in collaboration with Ben Z Cooper. At the end of August he asked me to collaborate on a multi-media piece for IDS West, and of course I said yes. My part was to intricately cut these two layers of paper to overlay a digital screen.
Each piece is approximately 11.75″ wide by 19.75″ long to fit over said screen.
The bottom photo is the two layers together over the dark screen. I sent this to Ben when I was finished so he could see how thing turned out. I was originally going to cut three or four layers, but I decided the two of them had enough going on all by themselves.
I don’t know exactly what Ben will do for his part of this piece, but I know it’s going to be AMAZING! Check out his website to see more of his work as an Imaginographer.
