Dereliction – Colours of Abandonment

Abstractions

Opening Saturday, Dereliction is an eye on things abandoned: ignored, forgotten, forlorn, fading away, dismissed by our modern predilection for everything new. Following the Ghost Town Trail along obsolete railroads: from Tiny to Biggar, Eastend to Westbend, Smuts to Maidstone. Exploring houses, stores, shops, barns, and churches left to the elements, owls, and racoons. Capturing vignettes of abstract beauty, hidden away in stuff left behind: crackling paint, peeling wallpaper, perishing linoleum, disintegrating vinyl, rusting equipment.
