Halifax 2012 3x6ft, acrylic on wood panel
Halifax 2012 is based on a photograph taken by the famous Halifax photographer Chris Reardon, who hung out the side of a helicopter to capture this scene. Then the image was run through my head, eyes and hands and we came up with this brilliant monster. If a work of art reflects the artist, then it appears I have not grown up as I try to knead childlike cartooning, N.S. folk art Fauvism and Pop into a golden warm, sweet smelling image loaf of our town by the sea..
