And now for something completely different . . .
An accident last winter bruised my eyelids and reminded me how fragile and miraculous human vision is. Sometimes what we see, or don’t see, cannot be replicated by the camera lens. I’ve started working on a new series that captures passing landscapes through a reverse panning technique.
If you missed it . . .
The Spectra show in April and May at Gallery 1313 in Parkdale was fantastic, and very well received. Here’s Eliza talking about her work at the artists’ talk.

How I do it
Every three or four months, since April 2015, I have walked back and forth along Queens Quay on the downtown Toronto waterfront, between Yonge Street and Parliament Street. A few weeks ago, I went further west –>
Why? Because I had heard that some day the block currently occupied by the Westin Harbour Castle hotel would be redeveloped.
After the shooting
After the shooting, I wait …
Until inspiration strikes about what the next piece will be.
Perhaps a building has been demolished, or trees cut down, or hoarding put up. Perhaps a new building is emerging from above the fence. Then it’s time to have some fun.
Stay tuned for news about the next great idea.
