Fused Cultures, detail

10 Feet H X 10 Feet W X 6 Feet D

Acrylic paint on paper with a projection of a found slide, and grasses collected from Northern Ontario.

The pattern on the screen has been derived form a photograph of my Great Grandfather’s house in Lucknow, India, the grasses are collected in Ontario, where I was living at the time and the slide is of an unknown place. The piece creates a dialogue of place, culture and how we hold on to our many places of origin.
