|The Canadensis Suite considers choice from the point of view of a 20th Century journey of exploration. The work is specific to three historic Canadian locales, with echoes of previous imagery suggesting a method, history and overall context for the collection. Canadensis is a re-exploration of territory long known and inhabited: An echo of former documents of discovery in a collection of images of the familiar. Within this familiarity is an acceptance of the less than perfect, the dried and twisted, the discoloured and decomposing. The specific identification of forms is less important than this sense of familiarity - a possible recognition, a similarity, a reminder. |
