Shroud, 2008-2012 I am interested in the control of Nature and how manifestations of that control speak to how we relate to ourselves and each other. In an attempt to shield new growth from the harsh realities of Canadian Winter trees are wrapped in cloth and braced with metal spikes. The results of this shrouding ritual are strange aberrations of shape; unnatural, yet beautiful in line and form. Protection lives closely with confinement as we guard ourselves from the world around us.
