Art, among other things, communicates thoughts, ideas, feelings and a way of seeing and sharing them with others. Narrowing choices between desires and restraints while responding to or purchasing artwork could be challenging. Visualizing alternatives without risk or costs might be the best way to choose artworks for the living or working space. I simplify this process interactively.

The landscape is associated with visual and emotional perceptions of a people's land. Therefore, it reflects the current disposition of a particular culture.
Now that more than half of Toronto's population is born abroad, I wonder how Canadians can comprehend the full scale of the Canadian landmass and processes through our collective consciousness. Can we sustain this awareness with everything it would entail?
Watching the surface of the water is quite a captivating experience, like watching a human face that can reveal as much as it can hide.
The water’s edge is where we reflect upon our affiliation with nature.
The demands of human life kept reshaping our attitudes towards the natural environment in the history of mankind. In my own experience, I recall the allure of “a cabin in the woods” entrenched in North American culture. It seems like a distant past. Once full of activity, Ontario waterfronts in “cottage country” are now quiet and deprived of children’s laughter. Once busy summer camps are closed, and most lodges farther north are out of business. The sky above is crisscrossed with jet vapour trails, pointing to all-inclusive destinations.

A nostalgic trip back to rewrite memories of my long days in a darkroom. The striking power of B&W images still relies on removing distractions and focusing on the scene's essence. It also integrates easily with various contents of most interiors.
As the borderline between liquid, solid, and transparent states, a shoreline embodies the transition between the inanimate world and the world alive. As a stepping stone in life’s evolutionary history, it’s still a place to see life in the making.
I have witnessed the human attitude changes exemplified by the Niagara Escarpment and Carolinian Forest restoration efforts in Dundas Valley. Once decimated during the outburst of the Industrial Revolution in Hamilton, they are returning slowly to their original state. It was made possible by dedicated visionaries. I feel privileged to be able to document the progress of their revitalization.
I have also witnessed the continuous growth of urban environments throughout my lifetime. Whether accelerated by migration or immigration, it contributed to the disintegration of communal wisdom and social consciousness. Thus, the coherent vision for the redevelopment of the city became unattainable.
The path to making a large image of “staying power” is bumpy and full of trials. It is often necessary to shape the engaging view of a particular environment by making a series of small studies along the way.
We all live in a crowded world of images. We might have developed an “immunity” to them in public spaces as they all compete for our attention, trying to sell something. Please try envisioning an image in the setting you got used to, taking you away momentarily to a different world of reflections and transcendence. Giving you a mental break from what you were doing. These momentary pauses are invaluable in the workspaces as they restore our brains' cognitive capabilities.
