A structure made too look like a room with only two walls. Placed in a park. With man speaking in front of it.

In the Grand Valley with Homer is an installation piece which references the romantic and idealized landscape paintings of "Canada's first painter" Homer Watson, within a celebratory, yet critical contemporary context.
