This is the display wall for my show running the month of July. I went a bit bold with four photos of kelp, printed on canvas. My favorite is probably the circular one on the stand, called 'Medusa '.
The idea for the show came from memories of my male cousins on the beach, who cut the ends off kelp and showed me how to make a trumpet blast sound across the length of the sand. Later, after my stepbrother passed away of cancer, my mother and I went to Tofino . We did not speak of death . Mum took delight in exploring tide pools like a kid, and I took multiple photos of kelp and seaweed . And now I enjoy the taste of it, toasted.
