Acer Family Viewing comprises thirty-three editions of lithographs which present traditional keys to memory - accurate portraits of individuals at specific stages of development. This work arose from an examination and collection of brilliant maple tree buds on winter walks through Toronto's Mount Pleasant Cemetery and Arboretum. Consideration of memory, public and private, is natural to this site.
In 150 Maples an iconic representation of a maple bud form is present for each maple known. Here in the accumulation of information, it is the repetition of sameness that underlines the commonality of experience: Maple. Family and history merge in an installation which suggests an heraldic precedent.
Acer, Suite of 33 images, 38x28cm, litho acid tints, editions of 10,1991-1994. $300.
