Oh Canada, my home and native land. “Canada Day” is my reaction to enterprise encapsulated in one day of celebration and inner city dynamics exploding into logistical eye candy.
Fields of colour, drawings and written descriptions are the foundation for this piece. The overwhelming nature of my original image was much like the event its self. I felt a need to contain the image so I introduced a naturally evolving grid of liquid acrylic paint, squeezed onto the canvas, encapsulating the piece and selectively revealing its narrative.
“Canada Day” was seen for the first time on Instagram onJuly 1st 2018.
