Galiano

May 20, 2015

Galiano

It has all been heard
before. Sun bursting
open green leaves and
falling. Browned, crunching
under foot’s pressure
heralding audience
to this island’s call
and response, that Jesus’
promised stone chorus
would cry. Water
weight bolts toward rock’s
tempo-loving home,
spitting moisture up
wood-wind trunks, branches,
and through fragile grasses
also split open
by sun’s glare crackling,
like light off the
sea channel’s loose skin.

Shout perpetually on
song of wood, rock, home.

 

Artist Statement
The multi-step development of collage work appeals to notions of process, building, and collecting. A hunt must ensue to gather bits of magazine images or colors that will eventually relate the possibility of beauty and cohesiveness amid their fractured and fragmentary display.

The visually chaotic surface rendered by these gathered images are eventually overlaid with organic painted shapes. These crudely, hand-derived circles connote relationship, entities, that shift through the query of their placement on the field and their proximity with each other. They are individual forms, simultaneously repelled yet desiring one another. Painting on these fractured surfaces serves the impulse towards unity, to usher in connectedness. Overall, the painting process signifies hopeful movement towards relationality. Humanity is not as isolated as it perceives itself.

This is a watercolor of the view we have from our Galiano family home. The depicted island across the channel is Salt Spring. Galiano is one of the gulf islands between mainland Vancouver and Vancouver Island in BC. Brian’s parents are part of a co-op of sorts that was started 20 years ago by Regent faculty. We visit every other summer for a family reunion.
