Description This large scale outdoor installation consists of three hollow, polygonal steel boulders called Drop Stones that have a rusted, weathered patina. The works represent erratics, geometric stones shaped and carried often hundreds of kilometres by glacial ice. The largest of the Drop Stones works, this piece has been exhibited at the Albright Knox Art Gallery and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Natural stones manifested here in steel creates a natural tension contrasting our experience of nature in an urban setting. Individual sizes of the works are as follows: Glacial Series: Drop Stone 1- 108 x 100 x 95 inches Glacial Series: Drop Stone 2- 65 x 54 x 70 inches Glacial Series: Drop Stone 3- 36 x 40 x 38 inches

Poised between abstraction and representation, the artworks of Canadian artist Shayne Dark (b. 1952, Moose Jaw, SK) are often coated in eye-popping saturated pigments. His networks of steel branches or steel stones, indoor and outdoor iterations, are a contemplative intersection of the industrial and the organic.

In 2016, Dark exhibited at the Brooklyn Sculpture Center, where he was artist in residence. The same year, he was given a solo exhibition at the Albright Knox, NY. Dark has received six Ontario Arts Council grants and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. His work may be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections including Queen’s University, the Canadian Embassy in Prague, the City of Ottawa, the Federal Communications Commission, New York.
