It’s A Good Day For Maple Trees and Evergreens, Sheet Metal and Spray Painted Metal, 5′ x 3′ x 16″, 2013

This Project I really wanted to expand on everything that I have been experimenting with for the four years of my undergrad, which you will see below. I wanted to further the emotional experience that the viewer has the piece and make the viewer become lost in the layers seen within the sculpture. I wanted to experiment with different textures and surface colours in order to create a complex variety within the scene.

Inspired by one of York Wilson’s paintings, I tried to create a layered image which would simulate an abstract way of how you would look into a forest; through the trees you see the the lake and the shore which is beyond it.

I began to use multiple frames in my hanging sculptures in order push the amount of depth and tiny details in my images. This was also my way of taking my layered images further “out of the box”

These two layered images were the first that I decided to attach to a frame. The frame makes the sculptures push the limits of a painting since the metal has become like brush strokes for me. This is when my sculptures began to be called my “metal paintings”.

Theses light boxes I first made in order to create a sculptural object which would work as a mechanism and to further push the idea of a painting. These objects were my first sculptural pieces which were created towards the goal of pushing the emotional experience of the viewer further; for making a larger emotional impact for the viewer.
