This summer, I’ve been working on a big commission for Harbourfront Centre. The finished sculpture will be a ceiling hung permanent installation for Harbourfront Centre’s foyer.
I have been exploring using wire as a new way to create lines in space, expanding my material repertoire. This fine, flexible line has potential to be formed, shaped and hammered into two dimensional shapes and three dimensional forms. I am attracted to the gestural, playful quality of working with wire along with the shadows it casts and its feeling of lightness.
It has also been very nice to work outside in the warmer weather. Here you can see some initial wire studies exploring radial patterns and botanical shapes along with sketches and embroideries that I used as a starting point for this project.
