ABOUT THE ART
Esle. My Nana. My prairie grandma. Her immigrant life is the story of so many Canadians. Successful, but of two minds. A loss of language. A loss of culture. Buildings made of wood, metal and concrete wrapped in tyvek. Cities on pasture land. Human sprawl. New Cultures born. Both creation and destruction.
When city meets country, where progress and tradition intersect, that's where this picture will be.
* This print was given away at the second free print show in September of 2011. It's more of an image study on my families past mixed with my thoughts and ideas about the present. It has led to create a much larger painting of the same subject.
