Giant Bingo delves into the complex world of Internet dating. I have chosen to use the two metaphors of BEAVERS and BINGO to explore the theme of love. Beavers are an admirable species; they mate for life, are monogamous and build wonderful homes for their families. They are familiar to viewers both as our national animal and for cheeky sexual innuendos. Bingo is a game of chance, luck and patience and a popular pastime in urban and rural parts of Saskatchewan.

Combining printmaking, drawing, sculpture and painting this exhibition explores the role chance and luck when searching for love. The world of Internet dating is a challenging one. It takes patience, effort and a lot of courage to wade through hundreds, even thousands of pictures, headlines, and profiles. Emails, chats and first dates all lead to the possibility of a potential connection. Giant Bingo is about keeping fingers crossed as you play the ultimate game, while maintaining faith that you may eventually beat the odds and win big!
