In 2012-2013, I took a step back from the Tourist series in order to push beyond my own preconceptions about what painting could be. As you view the images, you can read my playful text that I wrote for the exhibition which took place in Toronto at Bau-Xi Gallery: Bilder/Pictures (With Some Words).The open-endedness of the text suggests the fluidity of meaning that can be brought to the viewing of pictures.
