About the Artist:

Bronson Smith studied Architecture and Industrial Design at Carleton University in Ottawa, His work continues to capture elements in our lives before they disappear, such as old barns, rural scenes and abandoned outports of Newfoundland.

“I have been drawn to decay and the transitory nature of the world around us. Buildings and communities age and disappear and are confined to stories of days past. I use acrylic paint and routered plywood as my “canvas” to capture the images of the outports of Newfoundland and Labrador and the barns of Ontario. These solid structures become fragile as they are subjected to the elements of neglect, the environment and despair. I add shadow detailing with cut pieces of pine and balsa wood strips. My paintings hold onto the world that is lost or disappearing – sometimes in the blink of an eye.” — Bronson Smith
