 "CANAKANATA"  is a compound word partly from Kanata, an Iroquois word from 1535 meaning "place of small huts or settlement", the origin name for what ultimately became Upper and Lower Canada in the 1790s.

"CANAKANATA" has gone through several stages to arrive at its current state of seeming simplicity. As the artist's symbolic Canadian piece, the large masses represent geographical features of land, sea and sky with uniting pathways, while the smaller scale forms represent human settlements.

Tait's abstract works on canvas and paper incorporate colour fields with blocks of saturated, multi-layered texture and fragmented forms.
