What is Canadiana? It is a caricature. It can be a little bit kitsch and endearingly romantic, hinting at epic spaces and endeavors. We have chosen to be both specific and deliberately un-specific, relying on abstracted images, colours and shapes…. A glimpse of the woods at the cottage. The hue of cedar paneling. A window that glows above CN rail lines. A slit of light through a sepia photograph. The texture of wool. The light cast through turning leaves. We are fabricating nostalgia: a brief, whimsical fantasy of Canada.
