human / nature
This body of work explores a perplexing and troublesome question: why do we seem unable to stop ourselves from destroying Earth? Why do we treat Nature so poorly?
The bits of driftwood I collected along our Yukon shores resemble human bones, tendons and muscles; the waves that deposited them a reflection of our own evolution, to move and dance upon this Earth.
Several driftwood sculptures are on display at the Yukon Arts Centre (outdoor garden) and at the Carcross-Tagish First Nation Learning Centre in Carcross, Yukon. Photo credits: @Jake Paleczny Photography, Joel Krahn, Derek Parker, others.
