The Fertile Crescent

Urban life and endless growth are consistent themes in my works. The tessellations in this series - with obsessive interlocked forms - often stem from sensory overloads and feelings of claustrophobia. As an architect, I enjoy the underlying mathematics and structures too.

Glacial flows: Notes for a Requiem

Our world has been shaped by ice. Glaciers have carved our mountains and provided by their slow release much of the water needed throughout the year by people downstream. Their flows have helped to define us... and they are disappearing with global climate change. This exhibition speaks to what we are about to lose.

Deidre Hierlihy - January 4 to February 6, 2018

Stone Stories

Old graveyards, peppered with their tombstones of every shape and size have always interested me.  Many gripping Canadian stories are linked to these headstones. I just had to gather and present some “Stone Stories” on canvas for Canada’s 150 anniversary celebrations.

An exhibition in the Canada Naturally series.

Photo-based digital art using imagery composed entirely of light. Controlled movement of the camera transforms what the camera can see but the eye cannot, resulting in “Lightscapes”: cityscapes and pyrotechnic imagery, digitally interpreted, celebrating light, space and time.
