"Invasive Species" questions what is "wild" and how we are negotiating our relationship with wilderness and our environment. Human intervention within a natural landscape has been a central theme of my work for over thirty years. "Invasive Species" was inspired by my lifelong observations and connection to the immediate environment of the Toronto Islands where I have lived since childhood. It is an exploration of site and place - in particular, how we use and form landscape through personal interventions, large-scale land management and day-to-day activities. The photographs are images of found interventions, some that lasted for only a short time, and some that remain intact today.

"Invasive Species #21," 2014, is in the collections of the MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie, ON and The Art Gallery of Hamilton.
