“Living and already gone. A moment and an eternity.
‘Ghost’ is a portrait of an old growth yellow cedar in the upper cut block of the Fairy Creek watershed. I have been painting portraits of old growth for several years and first visited this tree in the Fall of 2020. When I started this work, I was not sure it would be standing when I finished. There are many people fighting to save the remaining old growth on Vancouver Island and recently, this issue has garnered international attention. Will this portrait become a record of something gone or a marker of a time when our respect and relationship with this living, ancient being is reflected in our policies and actions?”
