early work

 

The earlier work is fairly whimsical, folk-ish. I think the narrative impulse was always there. I was looking for simplification but also, I was living in places that I think of as closer to the natural world: a house on stilts on the Ecuadorian coast of the Pacific, and in a wood house across the bay (Malbaie) from Perce Rock in Quebec. Ocean light. It’s possible I had regressed emotionally. I don’t offer that as a facetious remark, art-making does allow for a certain ease of time travel, one is returned to earlier states of development.
