Canadian Cities (2012-2016)

In 2012 I decided to get to know my adopted part of Canada (Montreal and environs) as well as I knew my old one, all through research, geometry, and attention to detail. By 2016 what began as four 24" two-colour silkscreened prints showing Montréal and its nearby metropoli of Québec, Toronto, and Ottawa, grew into a series showing all the rest of Canada’s history and architecture including Edmonton, Winnipeg, Halifax, Hamilton, Vancouver, Calgary and Sherbrooke. By the end my eyes could not stop aching, as print in the set hosted 40 to 120 buildings and landmarks from a specific time (ie.  the “City of Calgary 13 Feb. 1988” shows that city on the opening day of the ‘88 Winter Olympics). See most of the series below, visit them all in the shop.
