a photo-based encaustic painting series exploring perception, reality and choice.

Featuring the prison bed, suitcase, and myself in various environments around the city of Toronto, the paintings are deliberately ambiguous, at times surreal and at times disquieting — provoking questions for the Visitor to interpret and explore.

Our perspective, inevitably limited, frames us — affecting and reining in our life choices. White corners in each work indicate the underlying photo edges; reference the photo corners of old photo albums; and allude to how we believe and frame reality.
