What sort of setting does Jack Bishop illustrate in revisiting the Canadian landscape?

See the answer
Jack Bishop revisits the Canadian landscape tradition in terms not of natural but of commercial space, where ubiquitous retail outlets dictate use of the land and proclaim its occupation. The densely crowded compositions map out a geography of anonymity, a sort of nowhere typical of the outskirts of large North American cities.
