I wish to share my love of image-making with people, hoping to make a connection with those who recognize something of the texture of their own lives in what they see here.

Hats off to Nathalie Olanick and David Hall for organizing and installing. It has been 28 years since the inception of this biennial and since I have been participating in it. Having retired from teaching at Dawson College, this will be the last time that I am involved with this particular exhibition project. Carry on, comrades! I shall miss you.


There are innumerable ways to compose four buildings, a person and a skyscape. After sketching many arrangements, I discarded those compositions where stable verticals and horizontals prevailed, and kept the one composition where the influence of perspective and the geometries of light and shade imposed a beautifully unsettled arrangement of diagonal lines and tilting shapes. This married well with the conceptual thrust of the drawing, wherein fundamental notions of what one believes to be true and reliable are destabilized by three words.
