Totems and Linescapes

Telephone poles. Telegraph poles. Utility poles. Hydro poles. They are and have been a part of our urban and rural landscape since the last spike was pounded into the national railway line.  The artist creates new trajectories of meaning as she endows these totemic structures with new crowns - rigid cross arms replace their branches and instead of leaves they have been given bolts, braces, nuts, insulators and trusses.
