Winter on the west coast can be quite dreary. Day after day of rain, combined with winds that often reach gale-force will leave you couped up in your house, itching to get out. The first snowfall of the year is a memorable occasion. Kids grab their snowgear and head for the nearest hill, knowing full well that their white carpet of snow will probably not last the night.
“Snowflake” was created to portray the temporality of the snowfall and of life. Each flake is different and unique. Each flake contains a vital force that shapes the world around it. Each flake will eventually disappear to appear again in another form.
“Snowflake” is a limited edition print using the giclée method of printmaking. Print production took place during November of 2005 at the artist’s own studio in Comox B.C.
