La Minerve, Quebec, Canada 2003

Using the materials within arms’ reach at each location of the Laurentian mountain site, I create a series of mandala forms. The locations include garden, forest, river, sand dune, hut interior, meadow, swamp. The parallel activity of the Tibetan Buddhist artist Losang Samten who created a traditional sand mandala during the residency influenced and challenged the concept and forms of my works.

An installation at my hut, and a live performance concluded the residency.

The work was carried out at the Boreal Art/Nature Center, La Minerve, Quebec, Canada, during a 3 week residency, Circle with a Center.
