For the past twelve years I have been installing sculpture in a lot located at Van Horne and St. Urbain in Montreal. The site acts as Gallery for my more whimsical work and is always evolving and changing as new pieces are added and edited all the time. Many of the pieces are kinetic and move with the currents of the wind and the seasons.
Transforming this space from what it once was…. a flat and barren space littered with garbage and refuse…. into a public space that is used by many as a meeting place, a picnic ground or just a place for repose has been a great pleasure to me.
One of the greatest pleasures of working on the same site for years is the anticipation of the seasons changing. Thanks to all the rain so far this year the sculpture garden is beautiful, wild and overgrown.
