A collaboration with artist and architect Jeffrey Riedl. Part of the City of Edmonton’s public art collection, located at South Haven Cemetery administrative building.

Veil is a large fabric-like lattice of airy line work appearing to billow from the building’s rectilinear geometry. The artwork’s delicacy and flow elegantly compliments the design and materials of the building it inhabits, and is empathetic to the sensitive context of the cemetery. The imagery evokes medieval Vanitas, or memento mori paintings, which reflect on mortality, the vanity of life, and transient nature of existence.
