“Quiet Bunny” Construction series

I have been following and documenting the stages of construction in my backyard in Richmond from literally the ground up.  I have started a painting collage series on board reflecting, in an expressive abstract manner, the aggressive processes of “development”. Richmond, as with several regions of the lower mainland,  are in constant change. Building sites are everywhere. This series shows typical construction machinery in action ripping up land and housing in the name of development; a construction, deconstruction cycle that I am following as things proceed.   Another thing I have observed is neighbourhood rabbits, which are considered a pest in Richmond, showing up in the midst of all the action and curiously lounging around among the gravel cement, dirt and heavy machinery, completely unafraid. I cannot explain this but the bunnies have become a symbolic part of my subject matter in this series
