From the Mendel site: "Using everyday materials such as branches, thread, string, toothpicks, buttons and recycled plastic objects, and applying mixed-media techniques, he mixes, heaps, wraps, weaves, braids, layers, fastens, rolls, twists and stretches them to create fascinating and ingenious installations and sculptures."

"Curator Sarah Quinton selected work from the permanent collections of the Mendel Art Gallery, Cambridge Galleries, Canadian Museum of Civilization, and the artist’s studio. A Spider’s Logic is organized and toured by the Textile Museum of Canada and the Varley Art Gallery of Markham."
