Plasticity coming to Art StationPosted: July 17, 2012
Michael Hepher and Paul Reimer are no strangers to collaboration. If you aren’t familiar with the Reconciliation Sculpture at the Cranbrook Airport, it is due time you check out the piece. The (above pictured) statue, which symbolizes the past struggles of the Ktunaxa people and their future prosperity, has been on display since 2010. Seeing both styles come together so harmoniously in the creation, it is quite clear that this not the first project these two talents have worked on together.
Stemming from the word used to describe the properties of forged metal, as well as the medium of Acrylic, ‘Plasticity’ and its two-fold signification unifies the works of Reimer and Hepher flawlessly.
Hepher’s work as a visual artist has been featured in many private collections and exhibits throughout Western Canada, but his appeal is not limited to Canadian soil. His clientele includes print sales spanning worldwide to Finland and the US. The diversity of his work is fascinating. There are few artists with the ability to master as many mediums as Hepher. In his ability to transfer his vision to canvas (or paper or print) so seamlessly, we get to see inside the mind of Michael Hepher with all works produced.
Like Hepher, Reimer’s passion for his art is unfaltering. For over 22 years, he has been applying his experience and technique in the art of blacksmithing to create vast variety of pieces from the modest letter opener to a mammoth 700 lb sturgeon-nosed steel canoe. Regardless of the size and caliber of his projects, the awareness he has for the lasting quality of iron shows in his attention to detail and design.
Join them at the Arts Station on Thursday, July 26 at 7 p.m. and see what creations they have come up with to share with Fernie.
The exhibition continues to Tuesday, August 28.
