Patience  was installed and exhibited at The Ou Gallery in Duncan, British Columbia, in February 2018.   Patience  was an examination of patience. I made this work after a massive shoulder injury six months prior to the residency. I was thinking about balancing elements of structure and fluidity, visually and within my own body. For months I couldn’t write, lift anything or paint. Through physical therapy, I began to retrain my body to be both strong and fluid. I could only think of the contrasts between soft tissue and bones, interactions within systems, and layers within a physical structure. This piece was my return to my practice, and a return to my physical body as an artist.  24”x50 yards acrylic on tracing paper roll 2018
