Winnipeg Art Gallery… I’m in!

14 September 2012

I’m thrilled! I’m truly thrilled to be able to share the fact that my work is now on display, and for sale, in the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Gallery Shop. The first sculptural work selected is “On The Surface All Seemed Normal…” Completed in 2010, it’s a figurative stoneware sculpture with low-fired glazes and iron oxide stain, augmented with cold-finishes: sterling silver bridle and a formed copper bit (340 x 210 x 420 mm). My artist statement for the piece reads as follows:

Lake Winnipeg has always lived large in my life. It has a hold on me that won’t let go. Being at the Lake signals a time for me to just be me… through the years, the Lake has swallowed a lot of my woes. It is a big lake… it can take it. And just so you know… on the surface all seemed normal.
