Museo Poco Street Dialogue
The entire Guerrilla Heart series arose out of a two year residency at an artist run window gallery in Calgary called Museo Poco (recently renamed the Sugar Cube). I spent this time working on the street directly outside of the gallery, recording the rhythm, energy and movement of my surrounding urban environment.
As I became more and more enamored with the dialogue I had developed with the street, I tired of my practice of passively recording this vital energy as it whorled past me. Instead, and in one rather spontaneous outburst, I chose to consciously redirect this energy with purpose and vision rather than be a passive recorder of it. It was with this desire and the influence of Agnes Martin (as I got out of my own way and simply responded to the inspiration) that the first Guerrilla Heart found its existence in the wall of event posters directly outside Museo Poco.
The Poco Heart had a life span of approximately 18 hours.
