Artist Statement

Life and winter storms have immeasurable beauty, a careful edge, fragility, softened with time, both end and start.

The images in this series are part of an ongoing body of work that uses winter storms to explore our relationship with memory and passage of time.

Standing in the Canadian prairie during a blizzard, the whited air muting all distractions, there is a sense of history. The obscured horizon becomes a stage with a curtain of blowing snow. What acts have played out here, what acts will?

Birds appear on this paper as leaves in the blowing landscape. A horse enters, much closer now, no longer in the distance. These animals come forward, familiar, as characters whose lines were practiced long ago. There is a farmhouse at the far edge of what can be seen, its concrete form softened, becoming lost in the snow smouldering field, a history trying to take shape. The blowing snow is covering things in, washing away colour, laying a cover over the work that has gone here. And laying moisture for the work to come.

Winter storms are like memories. Footsteps are quickly covered, but the world does not stop, always new footsteps, quickly covered. The endlessness of the world is here.

While exploring our collective connection to memory I returned to my childhood home in Saskatchewan. It is here in the harshest of prairie winter storms, that I continue to create images for this series.
