SEPIA MURALS by JAMES GAIN

MEMORIAL UXBRIDGE ONTARIO HERITAGE MURAL #1 PAINTED IN 2001 *

This mural was painted with acrylic latex on fourteen 4' X 7' panels. This made the entire piece 28' X 14'

 

I loved working on this mural for the sheer amount of detail and variety of characters that was available to me within the old photograph that I found through the Uxbridge Historical Society. Someone told me that they used very large negatives back then. I could keep zooming and zooming until I could discern the faces to the point where I could represent them as a portrait.

I find it an interesting concept that in any crowd of people there will be some who are clear and some whom are out of focus.

* There was a second mural I painted in 2012 which is an exact and improved replica of this one shown here. This #2 version was installed in place of this one. Images of this updated mural will be made available soon.
