Camp 30

2013, Oil on encaustic, 48"w x 72"h

I have been working with a place called Camp 30 as my subject. It is the only existing World War II German prisoner of war site still standing in Canada, located in my hometown of Bowmanville, Ontario. Surviving proof of an important chapter in Canadian history, these buildings housed about 800 high-ranking German officers who were captured during the war. Despite being saved from demolition, the buildings today stand empty and unprotected from defacement. I invite the idea that the paintings emulate that which they are depictions of—temporal spaces.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
