Statement
My recent body of work has thematically addressed issues related to water. My focus has been on waters geographical boundaries, scale, environmental impacts, its politics as well as its social and spiritual value. My early research began with scientific approaches such as sampling water taken in and around Montreal and trying to identify in a microscope all that is found in one drop of this water. This research resulted in the production of the two video works, micro and meso as well as large size prints and an artist book. The prints explore waters more hidden value, its sometimes spiritual and cleansing nature as well as its darker more ominous and foreboding qualities.
