Memories of Montreal

Toronto-based painter David Holden can’t remember what caused him to head home to Montreal a few years ago. But since then he has been returning again and again with his latest series of paintings.
His newest series of paintings incorporate childhood landmarks from the Montreal neighbourhood he grew up in along with symbolic images from his past and current life.
“The buildings and locations are almost like the backdrop, a stage set. I end up dropping in these other images and creating a narrative that way,” says Holden. “It layers my personal history from when I was a teenager and more relevant things that are happening to me now.”
