"Father Stone Throw, are you Pathetic or are you Brokenhearted?" refers to the aging infrastructures and populations which are left over in the wake of the continuing decline of extractive resource economies in rural BC. In this painting, a trucker, once a miner, is sandwiched between visions of tourist/leisure activity scribbled on the exterior of his truck and three travelers who urinate on the road embankment through the opposite window.
