I think I know where this church is is a 12" x 19" hand-coloured serigraph painting by Peter Shostak created on paper. The serene beauty of a snowy landscape is portrayed in this artwork as the warm hues of sunset illuminate the surroundings. On the right is a solitary white church with a noticeable dome and cross, surrounded by a few winter trees. To the left is a modest building and a series of utility poles lining a road that leads the viewer's gaze into the distance. The peacefulness of the scene captures a sense of stillness, bringing back memories of a familiar place in the vast openness of the prairies, which would likely be familiar to those who share the artist's heritage.
This artwork is a serigraph, also known as a silkscreen print, which involves stencilling an image onto a silk or fine mesh screen, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. The ink is then forced through the mesh onto the printing surface, creating a vibrant and colourful image with crisp lines and colour areas. This technique is ideal for capturing the vivid hues and stark contrasts in Shostak's portrayal of the Canadian prairies.
