This sculpture was installed on the Bedford waterfront in Nova Scotia. This was our first public abstract piece and both Fred & I are very excited. We enjoyed working together with Waterfront Development Corporation and Provident Developments Inc. to enhance the area with the artwork they have chosen.
We have also added a few photos of the hard working guys at Kings County Mechanical without their expertise and awesome work we couldn’t have pulled this off. Thanks!!
This piece is inspired by the landscape of Nova Scotia, a land of a thousand lakes and its many kilometers of coast line. The rugged beauty of the province was the realization for the two external sections of the sculpture with the stainless steel interior expressing the Bays and Ocean surrounding most of the province. This particular piece is designed to represent the Bedford basin with the water stretching all the way in land to the area around the condominium. The textured steel surfaces tapering back from the central stainless steel core are representative of the landscape and its diverse beauty from fields to cities to the pierced shape of the lakes. Along with the polished surface of the stainless steel we will manipulate the surfaces of the sculpture to reflect the landscape in abstract shapes and designs. These elements come from the patterns we see every day the texture in the rocks the patterns in a field of grass the foam that forms as the water is stirred and flows over rocks. I have listed just a few of the configurations that will be shaped into the sides of the sculpture, offering the viewer an interesting and interactive piece to experience. The reflectiveness of the stainless steel will also delight people as the will see themselves and the environment mirrored back to them albeit an abstracted view. The contrast of the organic forms and the beauty of nature revealed in the sculpture, complement the surrounding arrangement of structures created by man.
