NOT OF HUMAN KNOWLEDGE, 1981
Collection of the Burlington Art Centre.
Purchased through a grant from the Walter and Duncan Gordon Charitable Foundation and the Canada Council Art Back Special Purchase Assistance Program, 1986.

This piece is a funerary monument. It has a panel with two doors standing open towards the viewer. Looking in one sees two small boxes and beyond them a second higher wall with a door and a window with only part open; that is the upper half of the door space is cut away; one of the window panes is not open while the other three are. The ashes of Ruth Gowdy McKinley have been placed into one of the boxes. The work is done in muted natural tones.
