Off the Wall
Colorful interior walls in crude log cabins reveal thought-provoking art, stunning shapes, textures, lines, layered and deteriorated by 150 years of neglect.
Extraordinary images offer a glimpse into the artistic interests and personalities of the women who covered and recovered these walls with paint, cloth, wallpaper and canvas.
The resulting abstract art immediately captures your attention, and also chronicles the story of home sweet home, dating back to 1862. It exposes layer by layer a window in time, and provides insight into a forgotten history.
The viewer, now archeologist, is taken back through time to appreciate the original choice of colors and the currently random designs produced by invading moisture, weathering the once intentional interior design.
All this artistic splendor is found in Bannack, Montana, now a remote ghost town which, after gold was discovered, became a boomtown of 4,000 people in 1862. Bannack boasted 10,000 by 1864 when it was named the first Capital of the new Montana Territory.
Typical of western mining camps, the area attracted hearty men and women who worked long and hard in the pursuit of their fortunes. Enduring incredible hardships to get there, they survived on limited supplies once there and then faced the often early, brutal, long winter. Bannack was ravaged by outlaws or desperados in this totally lawless town, creating the need for the "Montana Vigilantes". Native Indians on whose land the gold miners were encroaching also terrorized the community.
Over 60 buildings remain today, each one disclosing important human elements of a long-gone time period.
My inspiration to produce non-objective abstract photographic images comes from what is left behind on the walls. This is my story, my project, “Off the Wall”.
