"Think Bob Ross meets Edward Burtynsky" - CBC News
100 years ago Tom Thomson and artists in ‘The Group of Seven’ made a name for themselves painting the pristine Canadian landscape. 100 years later, I’ve created contemporary artworks that reflect the new Canadian landscape. In this ongoing painting series, I ‘hijack’ vintage, mass-produced, Bob Ross-style landscape paintings found in thrift stores and antique shops, and I paint in hazmat cleanup crews and man-made environmental disasters. Many of the titles are appropriated from actual news headlines from real accidents that have occurred throughout the Canadian landscape.
