Abstract blue steel sculpture evoking the idea of a mountain range. In particular it is a contemporary response to the paintings from the 1920s and 1930s by Canadian icon and member of the Group of 7, Lawren Harris.
Shayne Dark is an exceptional sculptor, working often in steel or wood. His work transforms natural or landscape elements into very modern imagery. Dark's work is always monochromatic. Most often, he works in primary reds, blues and yellows, with occasional forays into fluoro green or orange. Described as one of the top contemporary sculptors to watch by critics at Art Basel Miami, his work has been installed in public spaces in many major North American cities. He has had exhibitions at the Albright Knox in New York, and is the sculptor in residence at the Brooklyn Sculpture Centre in 2016.
This work can be installed indoors or outdoors.
