Front

This work is a group of imagined past/future structures that as a whole infers the temple, or refers to ancient buildings, and implies the presence of the ancient in a colourful way, exploring pataphysical abstract art that plays in a space between painting and sculpture.

“Planted” these at the James Black Gallery, Vancouver on March 25, 2019, and again with another set on April 15 in Pinar del Rio, Cuba for the 13th Havana Biennial
