We’ll be calling these pieces “Tree Rings” when we debut them in the Summer Lights show at duthie gallery on July 1st.
The Tree Rings came about after we were invited once again to take part in the Summer Lights show on Salt Spring Island. Since we have been working with large amounts of split Pine Beetle wood recently, we saw it fit to take our idea for the colour-tinted resin tops to the outdoors with these illuminated pieces.
During the day they are a nice perch for your feet or your drink or your . Simple and playful.
At night however, they transform into something else entirely. Illuminated from within, the different coloured tints in the acrylic resins flood the surrounding area with a bright and lively luminescence .
Summer Lights features illuminated works of art in the environment, artifice in nature, pieces of public art made to be visible in the dark. Viewable from distances and infinite perspectives, they illuminate the trails and the towering trees of the Woodworks landscape and transform it into a new place, startling, playful and beautiful. Each piece changes and evolves through the day in different lights and times and weathers.
duthie gallery is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm and FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT from NINE TO MIDNIGHT through July and August.
