Untitled 1980 10 x 12″ approx. wood/paper with ink, gouache, acrylic paint This series, made in Toronto, used recycled materials from dumpsters next to homes being renovated in downtown Toronto. The wood bits are shaped from
baseboards and mouldings and other decorative trim. The central images refer to flowers from weeds found in the cracks in the sidewalk. I made a study of weeds, impressed by their resilience and surprising beauty; a close inspection of their tiny flowers often revealed orchid like delicacy.
