Studies for Garry Oak

2020 – (ongoing)

Coloured pencil; graphite pencil; photo-transfer

Various dimensions

These drawings employ a variety of drawing media used in my previous drawings, including graphite pencil, coloured pencil and photo-transfer. Since 2022 the paper support is an ink-jet print depicting the 1859 cadastral map of the Somenos district in the Municipality of North Cowichan on Southeast Vancouver Island, where several Garry oak preservation sites are situated and my video work Witness was filmed. The 1859 survey was amongst the first land surveys implemented in British Columbia.
