Coming of age in Toronto during the early 90’s meant the songs of The Tragically Hip formed a good part of the soundtrack of Rob Croxford’s life as a young painter searching for his creative voice as an artist. Today Rob is well-known for his photorealistic paintings of vintage neon street signs, retrofitted with quotes from movies and song lyrics.  For this exhibition, Rob was inspired by one of his favorite songs of The Hip, New Orleans Is Sinking.  The vintage sign in this painting is actually a reproduction of a famous sign that hangs on a historic building on Bourbon Street in the city known as The Big Easy.  Draped in Mardi Gras beads, the aged neon words declare: “You gotta do what you feel is real”, like the echo of a battle cry from an all night street party, suspended unlit and hungover in the morning sunlight.
