About the Exhibition
Critical Mass: Sculpture by Shayne Dark is an exhibition of recent sculpture by Ontario-based artist Shayne Dark, whose works exploit the tensions between the natural and the manmade with intriguing results. Dark's sculptures often evoke the contrasts between urban settings and the natural world, industrial and organic materials, and are meant to stimulate a spiritual or visceral reaction in the viewer. As an artist Dark has said that his goal is "…all about creating magical head-turning moments for the viewer."
The exhibition includes seven sculptures, including a series of four freestanding works collectively known as Critical Mass.
