About the Work
In a recent trip to India I was witness to a chronic presence of people without shelter. Coming back to Canada I am crushed to see similar dynamics of lack of shelter in my own country. My piece explores the concept of disparity. The hazy background contrasted with an intense focus on gold sheet paper in the foreground represents the presence of our society's strife for material gain amongst people in dire need.
