Divide is an exhibit of new sculptural works that humourously address the tension in our conflicting desires that we have of the natural landscape. These include, on the one hand, a continual drive to organize and control the landscape, while the same time cherishing seemingly "wild" nature as a place to make contact with the pure, unspoiled origins of our existence. The sculptures incorporate cast fragments of landscaping boulders propped up on and suspended by delicate wooden scaffold-like forms.
