Forming our identity is an operation that carries on slowly and steadily for years and decades, but inevitable questions surge when this course is suddenly disrupted. Do I belong here? Will it feel like home again? What will be remembered, what forgotten? What is to keep, to gain, to lose? How do I rebuild from here? Who am I going to become? This new body of work explores the process of balancing the old and the new, change and permanence, order and entropy, will and chance.There are two key elements present in this body of work, trying to balance each other. On the one hand, this sense of loss and misplacement was a constant presence when I just moved to Edmonton. It felt as like someone had changed the game, had taken away all the references I was familiar with, and I had to learn the rules again. Consequently, the paintings are charged with anxiety, fears, and doubts. But, on the other hand, there is hope. As a result, these pieces are imbued with hope, determination, and resilience.
