+Public Works (not-owned)

This year I installed a Sculpture at Montreal’s Pine/Park Interchange. For some time the city has debated over how to best use that space and have not been able to arrive at a consensus, leaving the space blank.  With the help of some worthy cohorts I installed a Guerilla Sculpture at the site.

Unfortunately, within days the sculpture was stolen but I was glad to contribute to the dialogue my perspective that Public Art has a place in Public Space and that art can animate our environment.

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral – Antoine de Saint-Euxpery

Montreal is a remarkable city, still full of potential for a modern artist to work with the natural materials and space that the city provides.

When a building burned down on Montreal’s St. Laurent Blvd. the fire left a huge hole in its wake. Like a painter before a blank canvas I immediately saw the potential in that arena of space. I spent a weekend, working in rain, to build stone sculptures composed of the bedrock of the building.
