My ice typography work was recently featured in BG Magazine. I love the layout of the images.

Start the new year off with the 2013 Environmental Art Calendar by Amber Lotus Publishing. Photo Solar Resource is featured in February. I am in good company with other artists such as Steven Siegel, Patrick Dougherty, Chris Drury, Karin van der Molen,( whom i met during Land Art 360 Mongolia) Chris Booth (who exhibited during the Earth Art in Vancouver) and Diana Lynn Thompson (who lives on Salt Spring Island here in BC). What an honour!
Pharos consisted of six blocks of ice with fabric embedded in them created during the Winterlude Festival in Ottawa Canada in February 2012. The 5 foot high blocks of ice were created outdoors in situ and the garments were meant to represent the early days of winter Carnivals. The piece was installed in Confederation Park, along with 10 other artists who were part of the BlizzArt exhibition. It took a week for the ice to freeze due to the unseasonal warm weather in Ottawa- they even had to close down the Rideau Canal to skaters for a few days. Big thanks goes out to my cousin Michel and his friend Jen who helped with with the installation and photography. The clothing became more exposed as the ice melted in the sun. As 695,000 individuals attended this year’s Winterlude, many photos were taken of my work and it’s a pleasure for me to see how others interpret it.
I am very proud to have been selected for The View Project, curated by Joyce Tenneson, a photographer who’s work has inspired me for many years. This is a traveling group exhibition of photographs that reveal something about the photographer’s inner life – images that are personal and powerful, yet perhaps not clearly understood, even to the viewer/photographer. The View Project will be an opportunity for each viewer to ask themselves what views, places, and moments in their own lives have left an indelible mark on them. Tenneson has also assembled a digital slideshow which will accompany the exhibition and will be projected in the galleries.
The View roject kicks off with projections of a selection of photos from the exhibit (including my View photo) as part of FotoWeek D.C. Nov. 5 – 30. The exhibition opens at Naples Museum of Fine Art, Naples, Florida, Dec. 18, 2010 – Mar. 13, 2011.
