Baltimore, ON

About the Gros Morne Experience:
I spent the month of June, 2000, as Artist-in-Residence at Gros Morne National Park. The area has been designated a World Heritage Site primarily because of the unique visual evidence of the tectonic plate theory.

The place is a geologist's paradise and my work reflects my investigations of structure and rhythm, and the grand design of the land, sea and sky.

Involvement with the scientific community, local residents and park visitors is at the discretion of the artist. My contribution included a lecture on my previous work, an exhibition of work produced during my stay including photographs drawings and watercolours, and the presentation of a work for the permanent collection of the gallery in St.John's.

As an extension of my residency experience, in September 2001 I worked at St.Michael's Print Shop in St.John's. I used some of my drybrush ink drawings as a reference and produced a triptych of lithograph prints.
