Poised between abstraction and representation, this aluminum tangled branch sculpture by Canadian artist Shayne Dark is powder coated in a deep red. This intricate and bundled network of metal branches is a contemplative intersection of the industrial and the organic.
In 2016, Dark exhibited at the Brooklyn Sculpture Center, where he was artist in residence. The same year, he was given a solo exhibition at the Albright Knox, NY. Dark has received six Ontario Arts Council grants and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. His work may be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections including Queen’s University, the Canadian Embassy in Prague, the City of Ottawa, the Federal Communications Commission, New York.
