Examines our relationships with grief, inviting a pause and a thought for what is often taken for granted. This piece carries a dedication to those affected by the ongoing mental health and opioid epidemics.

An artist-blacksmith and interdisciplinary craftsperson living in the Slocan Valley, Lashen studied in the sculptural metals program at Selkirk College. A founding member of the Blackbird Arts Society, a Kootenay-based non-profit arts collective that works to further creative dialogue, his work explores the liminal zones where the realm of the surreal and the human condition intersect.
