Artist’s Statement:
As I watched the the election campaign unfold, I was energized by the call for change and decided red was the colour for this change! As the reality of what was about to happen sank in, the colours reflected my optimism and the light blasted through. I completed the binding as the election results came through. It will always be connected to my pride in being a Canadian.
