Private: Bronson Smith

About the Artist:

Peterborough-based artist, Bronson Smith studied Architecture and Industrial Design at Carleton University in 1978 and began experimenting with wood relief paintings in 1983. Bronson has been collected internationally and has participated in numerous exhibitions. Since moving to Peterborough from Toronto in 2007, his work continues to capture elements in our lives, such as old barns, rural scenes, and abandoned outports of Newfoundland, before they disappear.

“I have been drawn to decay and the transitory nature of the world around us. Buildings and communities age and disappear into the mist and are confined to stories of days past. I feel the need to capture the images of the outports of Newfoundland & Labrador and the barns of Ontario. These solid structures become fragile as they are subjected to the elements of neglect, the environment and despair. My paintings hold onto the world that is lost or disappearing – sometimes in the blink of an eye.” – Bronson Smith
