David Thauberger: Road Trips and Other Diversions

In David Thauberger’s vision, the vernacular architecture of the prairies bursts with pop art iridescence. Familiar buildings like legion halls, grain elevators, diners and small town bungalows are flattened into postcard-like pictures that glow with neon colours and hyper-real skies. Thauberger’s buildings are emblems of prairie social and community life and suggest connection and transformation in an often inhospitable prairie environment.
