This work of art is one I've shown before, but it has been awhile. I took these shots on Easter Monday, the same day as those taken in the post from two days ago. Twist 1.5 is a 1978 sculpture by Alex Wyse and Ken Guild. Constructed of British Columbia fir, it evokes the spiral motif often found in nature. The sculpture resides in Major's Hill Park, and the landmarks in the background of these shots include the Connaught Building, the Chateau Laurier, Parliament Hill, and the U.S. Embassy.
Wood is a great material for art...ReplyDelete

Great job on the photos of the spiral!ReplyDelete
I love the complexity of this sculpture. But, really, it's a very simple spiral, often seen in Nature. So complicated and yet not! And I like all the different viewpoints.ReplyDelete
A fantastic sculpture with a lot of different views.ReplyDelete
