These two geometric pieces above the table are from a series of work I did in Wells, BC as part of an exhibition I presented there in 2009. For those of you who don't know Wells, it's a small town on the doorstep of Barkerville - one of the main gold mining towns of the Cariboo Gold rush in the 1850's - more history on Barkerville here.
Williams Sonoma Home has graciously described the work as:
In these vivid abstract prints, artist Katie Brennan draws inspiration from the architecture of a Canadian mining town. The abstracted line paintings are a study of late 19th-century building facades, which she has morphed through repetition, scale change, and alterations to the silhouettes themselves. The images build up and collapse from one form to the next, lending an air of energy and a sense of surprise.
