Our North End neighborhood is represented in my painting called “Living Layers”. For me, each bright colour in this abstract painting represents the diverse personalities and perspectives in our area. As we go about our lives in the North End, we encounter so many cultures and diverse backgrounds, each with such unique stories. As we experience the great restaurants, coffeeshops, art galleries, and gift shops alongside each other, a community connection is made. Like the layers of colours in my painting, the encounters with people create living layers in our daily lives. I named this piece “Living Layers” for that reason.
We are all connected and we all provide unique colourful stories to our neighborhood, the North End. What a great place to be!
The colours in this abstract painting are bold and bright with detailed layers and intentional overlapping. Blue, pink, black, orange, and yellow represent the people in our community in the North End of Halifax.
We are all connected and we all provide unique colourful stories to our neighborhood. What a great place to be! The original piece of artwork is acrylic on canvas and measures 18x24.
