About Stone Celebration

A stunning contemporary composition of carefully curated objects, this wall sculpture is by Alice Vander Vennen. Her mixed media works are made from an eclectic assortment of ‘found’ objects—copper, wire, stones, and archival and new fabrics. The colour palette is earthy with touches of copper, blue, yellow, and orange punctuated by black against a bright white backdrop. With this piece, the objects are layered and stacked vertically as in a totem and topped with a small stone--each element adding to the rich narrative.
“This work pushes that form into the sculptural realm, exploring new possibilities of shadow and light, and invites a deeper dialogue with place.” Alice Vander Vennen

She trained as a sculptor at Calvin College, USA and at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Alice Vander Vennen’s work is in public, private and corporate collections both here and abroad.
