This is one from my “COVID Buildings” collection, in which I use old barns & buildings as a metaphor for isolation and feeling a bit “off kilter”. Using colour to create depth & dimension, and imprecise brush strokes, I celebrate the resilience that can come from fragility, inviting the viewer to imagine the stories the old building might tell. Each building in the collection has been standing for at least 100 years, and has weathered many a storm, just as we will weather the storm of COVID. 

In this case the vibrant yellow in the Spruce Bluff School in Manitoba almost dares the viewer to describe it as “broken down”.
