Blue Night Voices

1995
"Blue Night Voices" is a richly layered painting of land and psyche. Layers of text, maps, diagrams, symbols and coloured space create a cumulative sense of an ornate but open land, specifically the Canadian Prairies. This place bears the traces of past events and current memories. The deep blue space of "Blue Night Voices" hovers between suggesting night-darkened land, a starry sky, and reflections on water.
