Another Iconic Image

Artist: Krista Hasson

As I child growing up, railroads made a great impact in our country. The image of huge locomotives represented the dynamic power of a country on the move. There was even a time when an artistic image of a great locomotive was on the face of one of the paper currencies.

Then, as time passed, the role of the railroad began to decline, and Canada searched for other images - space arms and CN towers.

Here we find, artist Krista Hasson capturing the image of the railroad in decay. Her painting is not just a statement of the times but its a solid representation of life today.
