An arresting abstract wall sculpture in bright blue is one of a series created by Canadian artist Shayne Dark. The layered circles of steel are reminiscent of abstract botanical form and suggest movement and the pulsing of sound. Shadows cast by the piece shift with the changing light of the day.
“I often use brilliant colours in my art practice. I hope that first time viewers will be visually arrested by the colour and then on closer inspection react on multiple levels.” Shayne Dark
Inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2018, Dark has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally. In 2017, Dark had a solo exhibition and an artist residency at New York’s Brooklyn Botanical Garden. The same year, he had 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 worldwide.
