Burnaby, Vancouver BC, 2021
Succession II is a true reflection of my undying love for the landscape. I have been fortunate to combine my professional life as a Public Artist and Landscape Architect to express both a global and nuanced vision of the urban landscape influenced by the natural environment. Succession II is an opportunity to continue to explore this passionate dialogue on the complex intricacies of restoring our landscapes.
Thematically, the walkway and surrounding landscape are reflective of a dry stream bed which creates an associative connection with nearby Byrne Creek. The intention of the sculpture is to reinforce metaphorically, the dynamic changes that will contribute to the success of this urban development.
The visual narrative generated by Succession II illustrates the harmonic relationship between the textures of contemporary urban architecture and landscape architecture. Thematically in this development complex West Coast Architecture is being gently kissed by the natural West Coast hydrological phenomena of the dry stream bed. The role of Succession II is to enhance and celebrate this dynamic moment where Architecture and Landscape Architecture meet.
