Oh, Canada

A rectangular oil painting sits on a white wall. It is a reinterpretation of the Canadian flag. John A MacDonald's head sits in the centre painted in red paint in lieu of a maple leaf. The white background is an image of beds in a residential school painted in white and grey. Some children are visible in their beds and one child is looking directly at viewers. The red panels on the right and left are painted using paint thinner to create a visceral texture.
