"Cadillac Elevator & Big Dipper"
Kevin Boyle, "Cadillac Elevator & Big Dipper," 2014, archival ink on metallic paper face-mounted on Plexiglas with aluminum/Sintra backing, dimensions variable.
In DaySleeper, Kevin Boyle captures vignettes of small towns on the Prairies, paying homage to once-vibrant communities. “As a child if I wanted to play with a friend, I didn’t plug into a game,” says Boyle. “I walked down the street and knocked on their door. I have vivid memories of growing up in the Canadian Prairies, playing ball hockey, riding my bike for hours and sitting by the river with my friends – things I think a kid should remember.”
