searching for the honkabeest
I believe that we are all, by nature, searchers—searching for knowledge, purpose, beauty, joy, grace… I have found that these arrive infrequently, unexpected and unbidden. They allow us to transcend the everyday, to experience, if only fleetingly, a sense of awe and wonder. The title of the work, Searching for the Honkabeest, is inspired by a poem by Canadian poet Dennis Lee. The imagery, drawn from family archives, is both imaginary and real, as all true memories tend to be.
