I began the shift series when I first moved to Toronto in fall 2011. It began with the idea of creating an abstract visual representation to fuse the best of the suburbs and the city. As usual the work had a mind of its own and took a slight change in direction. Instead, they are abstract images that show topographical abstract views of different places that surround me. The last piece is a fusion of nature and city elements, which for me is the ideal community to live in.
