Collaboration for By the Pound show

Photo taken by Vincent Luk, print stretched on 8"x8"canvas and painted on in acrylic.

I decided to take the idea of a past memory, like the one which was photographed, from the dog's (koji) perspective. I tried to translate the idea of a memory possibly stored and remembered through a dream in which Koji views himself from a third person point of view. His peaceful sleeping body floats along Mirror Lake in Banff as his owner probably often stands above his sleeping body while he rests, giggles at his legs twitching wondering where his fuzzy buddy has taken off to in the dream world.
