Gather: Ashes  Human intervention within a natural landscape has been a central theme of my work. This contemporary remembrance was inspired by my lifelong connection to Toronto Island. This work is an archive of firewood found on the beaches there. These remains are witness to celebrations, social gatherings and conversations lost to the night. The image reference the ways in which and social artifacts are collected and documented. Gather: Ashes is a contemporary take on the Victorian Cabinets of curiosities.  What remains in the landscape are impressions in the sand: a circle of rock or logs and ashes. 2014-ongoing.
