Hwy 21 N
Remember your favourite sledding spot, under the highway overpass, beside the train tracks? Remember the graffiti? It's all still there. You can still fall really hard and fast and fun there.
These Bridges & Fences are my exploration into the interplay of the objects we've built with the natural world that holds them.
Here, Nature is depicted by loosely-applied, textural, riotous colour. The colour is the first thing: it arrests the attention and makes us want to linger. But the texture is the other thing: it requires that a lot of work be put into painting anything of value atop it. I really had to watch my step.
