THE EXHIBITION TAKES PLACE AT BECKETT FINE ART , 41 LAKESHORE RD. WEST, OAKVILLE - TEL.  905-339-1796


"Current work continues with formal concerns and memory/fabrication of place; distillation of experience is created through places stripped of superfluous elements. While still influenced by landscape, the canvas is also a site of transition, where shifting impressions or memories are reflected through an ongoing process of obliteration and re-working."
