Meghan Dauphinee, currently living and working in BC, was raised here in London Ontario. The paintings in this collection are all happy reminders to the artist of the place where she grew up.
"I think of them as a series of postcards that I would receive from my hometown. The subjects are not necessarily the tourist mainstays that usually grace postcards, but rather they are the places that have left a mark on me."
"I find myself returning to these buildings when I come back to London, or sometimes I even return to them using Google street view. They are a source of inspiration that show up in my sketches and doodles."
"As an artist I feel grateful that such striking sources of interest remain within the context of an ever-changing urban landscape. These places are treasures, unique reminders of what London means, and how it feels to be here. This feeling of my hometown is what I am trying to capture in this body of work. To preserve that feeling, like a postcard from home."
