The Docks

Paul Elia

September 7 - September 20, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, September 14

These digitally illustrated prints depict post-industrial Southern Ontario cityscapes, including Hamilton, Toronto, Brantford, and Windsor. Entire city blocks (or strips) are recreated in heavy tones of black, white and gray (and sometimes muted colour). These drawings are meant to highlight the surreal contrast between the imposing industrial shells from a manufacturing history vs. the residential development around it.
