Abandoned by Gary David Fournier

Medium: oil
18 x 24 inches

Artist Statement: With permission, this piece was inspired from a photo from a friend, James Clavet, Pacific Northwest. it is a depiction of loss of architectural beauty and practical use of a once functional building. Formerly, a church, then schoolhouse it has obviously survived for many generations. Personally I hate seeing these buildings just left to waste.


Gary’s artistic journey began in High School where he excelled in oils, watercolor and the potter’s wheel. College art was

interrupted by Vietnam and 4 years of Naval service, including 2 years of duty in Vietnam. After Vietnam, he married,

started a family, went to college, and began a very demanding 40+ year career in the environmental engineering

industry working for several global engineering companies. Gary’s art provides an opportunity to express himself. After many years in all levels of management in the business

world, being able to express himself offers a relief from the confines of organizational structure and peer pressure.

Landscape, winter scenes, animals, boats, lakes & rivers, seascapes, still life and architecture are his typical subjects.

Gary prefers impressionism and his own style. Gary studied art while attending Empire State College, SUNY at

Plattsburgh NY where his focus was art history, drawing and watercolor.
