Return to the Nest - Retour au nid From the 2022 solo public exhibition La Traverse at Galerie Le Rift in Ville-Marie, Québec (Temiskaming region) – (February-April 2022).
Ceramic and mixed media wall sculpture that hangs in straight descent or side-swooping orientations. Light in weight despite its large size, it can hang from the wall or, two-sided, from the ceiling. The carved and painted wood has paper-thin porcelain figures captured in the resin apertures that are painted with equal detail on both sides. The glossy surface magnifies the depth of the surface detail.
180 cm x 110 cm x 6 mm, 2022.
"Barn Swallows are the only species, other than bacteria and viruses, to have evolved alongside humans, taking the advantage of adapting to nest on human-made structures like barns and covered bridges and foraging for insects in open farm-land."
