Peterborough based artist, Bronson Smith, creates his paintings with flat enamel paint on 1/4” plywood , and adds balsa wood strips to build up specific areas. Taking inspiration from Canadian artist, Paterson Ewen, who used a router to add depth and detail, Bronson now employs this method to his work.

“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
