About Red Bough

The delicate beauty and elegant form of a single tree bough inspired this bright red contemporary wall sculpture by Shayne Dark. The Canadian artist’s dynamic sculptures marry industrial materials with organic shapes. Dark’s evocative colour palette—this piece in red serves to accentuate the form and draw the viewer’s eye.

“Sculpture has allowed me to convey my thoughts and ideas through a visual and tactile medium.” Shayne Dark

“Dark seeks to reveal the inner beauty of the things around us with the aim of fostering a direct contemplation of the world, without the mediation of the artistic sphere. In this sense, his approach is part of a renewal of our ways of undoing and inhabiting places.” Katie Chagnon, Art Historian and Curator
