Glass tree offerings sent to the Canadian First Nation community of Attawapiskat in 2016 in answer to a
request for prayers and messages of support after over a hundred of their young people attempted suicide.

I believe that art needs to be a vitalising force in life
even and especially for people with nothing. So I'm
dedicated to giving back through through art.

The giveaway below was
Art for Ukraine.

100% of donations went directly to Massive Outpouring of Love, Dumfries
(
https://www.mool.scot), an established local charity helping displaced people.

Many of the offerings were cameraless photography prints, created back in the day when
I enjoyed the magic of non-digital printing, spending hours in a pitch black darkroom. In colour
darkroom photography you can't have a red 'safe light' like you do for black & white; no light is safe!

A bit more about cameraless photography:

Though it sounds like a contradiction in terms, the images here were created by this
curious technique, which reveals the tiny worlds hidden in translucent substances like plants
and minerals by magnifying and illuminating them. All are in the inverse colours of the actual piece.
Very thin/translucent areas appear dark, and dense/opaque areas appear light.

The resulting image is taken directly from the fruit, flower, etc, with no camera as ‘middle man’
...meaning there’s no ‘negative’ from which to print more copies in future. Though more could
be created through other means, these are the only true originals.
