Field and Barn: Carbon 416.12 | Barn at Walker’s Wood: Carbon 419.13

24 x 24 in


Both of these pieces are from a wooded area north of Durham Region with many kilometres of walking trails, bordering on this private farm. The numbers in the titles and paintings are seasonally adjusted carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere, as measured by NOAA in the month when the reference photo was taken. These are part of the Carbon Dating series, my way of bearing witness to climate change, while still appreciating the beauty and joy of the natural world.

Field and Barn: Carbon 416.12 [left]
I am interested in the shape of the barn and its contrast with the trees and grasses. The collage elements are created with gel prints on tissue paper, incorporating many images made with grasses, twigs and leaves.

Barn at Walker’s Wood: Carbon 419.13 [right]
The shape of the barn, indicating a human presence, with a full and wild field of grasses caught my attention. I altered the barn’s colour to make it less of a focal point and more of a conversation with the natural landscape around it.

Pieces can be purchased as a grouping or individually.

Artwork Type

What's the difference between "Reserve" and "Purchase"?

Reserve: Place artwork on hold for 7 days to arrange free digital mockups to visualize the artwork in your space, arrange a free consultation, arrange to view the work in person, or chat with us for any reason about the piece. (Learn more about these services).

This is complimentary and the best option if you are on the fence.

Purchase: Buy the artwork online. Additional shipping costs (if applicable) will be calculated at check-out. Please allow up to 7 business days for shipping.

Please note that we offer full refunds on artworks within 7 days of delivery, but delivery and return shipping costs are not refundable.

I love this piece, but can't quite afford it!

We offer some options which might hep with affordability:

  1. Rentals: artworks can be rented for 5% of the total cost, charged monthly, for a minimum of 2 months. Rental fees incurred can be applied against an eventual purchase, as long as the rental fees were for the same piece. This is a great, low-risk option to test the artwork out it in your space without paying the full cost up-front.
  2. Installments: similar to the rental program, we are open to arranging installment-based payments with zero interest fees. E.g., 25% of the artwork value charged monthly, over 4 months. This is arranged on a case-by-case basis.

To pursue either of the options above, please reserve the artwork.

How is authenticity guaranteed?

All artworks we sell are original works or limited edition prints. For the latter, the edition number and total number of editions will be specified in the description.

All pieces are signed by the artist.

An authenticity certificate with the artwork and purchase details will be provided once artworks are delivered and you have confirmed you are satisfied.

What does "Framed" mean?

The artist has already put the artwork in a frame, which is included in the dimensions and cost shown. An image of the artwork including the frame should be provided.

All frames are optional.
