I can look back ten years and see how my paintings have evolved into what you see today. People ask what the work is about but it’s not about anything specific. It’s a continuation, an evolution. I look at my work as a whole, as a body of work. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It takes on a life of its own.

Hunger means something is missing: food, a safe country to live in, an education, or even hope. We all hunger for something.
When I design a sculpture, thinking it through, applying new and geriatric skills to optimistic materials, I am hungry. I am seeking something that is missing. Oddly, the more I remove from that block of timber the hungrier I get. The more I carve the more I want. What you see in this sculpture is my attempt to see what my own hunger looks like.

I have long been fascinated with the art of indigenous cultures from around the world. Upon first inspection most of it seems so simple and yet at the same time is very powerful.

This painting by Ron Parker transports me to a time and place when I was truly content. Welcomed to our home for the night, my friends and I walked down to Sombrio Beach just as the sun was starting to turn the sky a rich golden colour. I can feel the cold sand as I take my hiking boots off and sink in my bare feet, the bite of the ocean chill as we fight with our tents and sleeping mats before huddling together on some driftwood and ‘cheers’-ing to the sunset. – Amber
