I am working frantically to prepare for my installation in this year's NIGHT\SHIFT 2014.  I am creating a community of illuminated paper houses suspended in the trees of two downtown Kitchener parkettes.

NIGHT\SHIFT 2014 is downtown Kitchener’s second annual nuit blanche-style festival of art, culture and nocturnal adventure.  NIGHT\SHIFT 2014 begins at 7pm on Saturday, November 1st, the night of the annual autumn time change, and will run into the wee hours.

This year's event is even bigger and better than last years, with over 40 different installations!

On the evening of Saturday November 1st come to Market Green (area 15) and Vogelsang Green (area 11) to see!

Rotunda Gallery - November 2014

October has been a very busy month finishing a series of large lithographic prints for the City of Kitchener's Rotunda Gallery show being installed on November 1st.  The title of the show is "Unreal Estate", it depicts a variety of imaginary spaces where we can escape our everyday urban lives and dream about amazing things.  The lithographs are printed on Japanese washi tissue and layered over printed maps of some of my favourite places.

These new works are all 30"x40" in size, too large for my press, so I had to print them in separate pieces and assemble them afterwards.  All are mounted on board using beeswax, so no glass is required (I hate glass).

I really enjoyed creating these drawings, and I still have a lot of unrealized ideas, so I hope to draw more soon.

The opening will be held on Wednesday November 12th from 5pm to 7pm.  Please come enjoy refreshments and view my new work.
