Discovery: Balance


Discovery: Balance show Jan 7 - 28, 2017. One of my pieces, "Bear and Salmon," will be taking part in a group show investigating the theme of Balance at Seymour Art Gallery. My artist statement:

In my work "BEAR and SALMON" the salmon is made of hemlock cones. The material illuminates the biological interconnectivity in the "Bear-drags-salmon-from-marine-environment-to-forest-environment-and-fertilizes-the-old-growth-trees" life cycle. Marine old growth are composed of 90% marine nitrogen. The cones for this piece were collected from old growth forest floor in the Carmanah-Walbran valley. How readily do we have access to how and where materials for consumer goods come from?
