Sculpture:

Borealis And Oreithyia

Moose Antlers, 52x30x18in, 2015, CND$ 150 000.00

The carved curves and swirls which flow between these mated antlers represent the phenomenal Yukon skies filled with the Aurora Borealis. I have many fond memories of laying on the ground gazing up at the multicoloured vortexes swirl, wrap, curl and whip across the night sky, periodically extending fingers of light straight down towards me, so close I imagined that by reaching up I could touch them with my own. The angled elements speak of powerful wind and mountainous height, while a smaller angled arrow on the left burr could be an abstract compass needle, pointing north. Borealis (or Boreas) is the ‘purple winged god of the north wind’ who took for his bride Oreithyia (pron. O-ree-thee-ah), whose name means ‘mountain gale’.

The antlers rest freely on a clear acrylic base, allowing for complete flexibility when installing the sculpture in a permanent setting. The sculpture can be viewed at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler, Canada.

This commissioned sculpture was my first carving in a whole moose antler, completed in 1997. It was a pleasure to represent ravens and wolves in a single work, both denizens of the north.
