Evocative sculpture in charred wood by senior Canadian sculptor Edward Falkenberg. Falkenberg burns, then burnishes and polishes the wood with the char, and the resulting black matte finish draws the eye. Constructed in the shape of a conventional wood fire, it is a play on the antithesis of the fire - burned wood that will never burn.
Sculptor Edward Falkenberg, (member of the Roayl Canadian Academy of the Arts), attended the Ontario College of Art and graduated in Industrial Design in 1965. Numerous solo and group exhibitions of his sculptures have brought national acclaim. His work is part corporate collections including Imperial Oil in Alberta and Orfus Investments in Ontario. In 2004, Falkenberg co-founded the Durham West Arts Centre, a self-sustaining public art centre in West Durham, Ontario.
