Scenic Route will be a painting which incorporates aspects of drawing and painting to depict different “scenic routes” in Ottawa, both urban and rural, to draw attention to the different qualities which entice us to “bypass” a standard route.
Scenic Route is part of a multidisciplinary practice which often focuses on science fiction, landscape, and/or narrative. In particular, Scenic Route acts as a continuation of my “Landscaping” series, which combines drawing and painting into singular images in an effort to disorient using different mediums to convey different spaces. These methods are at once complimentary and adversarial, creating a tension of representation in the work. Scenic Route is composed of multiple perspective of different types of “scenes” around Ottawa – all of which are “out of the way” and yet possess particular visual intrigue, whether it be from the narrative capacity they carry, or being “picturesque”, or otherwise.
