Legislature Series

These paintings are from an ongoing series that explores the forms and motifs that have become architectural tropes in their repeated use in certain buildings as monuments.

The “Legislature” series uses an analysis and abstraction of provincial legislature buildings in Canada by abstracting this use of architectural tropes through a process of geometric simplification and repetition and with the use of an abstracted colour vocabulary.
