Bright Lights in Big Cities
A series of acrylics exploring the multi-layered stories within Halifax using a unique collaged perspective.
“This body of work started out as a series of conversations which expanded into collages and then became the basis of these paintings.
I became interested in themes which related to Halifax both directly and indirectly and then began to assemble images which would tell different pieces of these stories. My hope is that each painting functions both as a series of related separate images and also as a unified whole.”
