Description

These banners were installed as part of the downtown Squamish street banners. They featured colourful geometric landscape designs.

Artist Statement

I chose a colour palette inspired by nature and infused with bright colours typically seen on the gear and clothing of outdoor enthusiasts. The geometric forms represent not only the powerful energy but also the diversity and complex balance of our landscape.
