One Hundred Drawings is a series of works done in watercolour on paper with overlays of screenprint, gouache. Some have hand-sticthed sequins and beads. Each one depicts a site of disaster that have I have visited and re-photographed. Although the nature and magnitude of each event covered by my project varies considerably throughout the series, all the events have been pictured in the media, simultaneously marking them as historical and thus fostering ongoing attention. In opposition to the spectacle triggered by the media coverage of each event, I have focused on the elusive qualities of each site.

 


I acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Je remercie le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil  a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
