My explorations for the art of paper show were extensions of the hand-bound book I created while on an artists retreat in Haida Gwaii (see earlier post in August of 2013). The art pieces are small meditations attempting to capture some of the simple yet profound beauty when we look at what is before us. The land is our teacher, the ocean an expression of this.
The pieces are made with hand-made paper, sponged with paint and embellished with gifts found along the shore. They were a joy to create, the act of making paper is a meditation in itself.
It was an honour to be a part of the show.
