In January/February 2017 I had the pleasure of doing a residency at Milkwood in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. During the residency I was offered the chance to be part of an exhibition with Bruce Pashak, also on residency, at Galerie D9 in the Ceske Budejovice University.
During this residency I created over 100 highly detailed drawings of life forms that I witnessed by/on/in the Vltava River. This is the longest river in the Czech Republic and was incredibly influential in the development of early settlements and the eventual growth of the country. Despite it still being cold and winter during my time here, I was able to find many life forms gathered at the river: birds, fish, plants, animals and people. These drawings I cut then mounted to the wall creating the shape of the Vltava River snaking its way across the gallery. In this way the river is represented by the life that flocks to it.
