SENSE OF PLACE

Sussex NB CANADA
Three sculptures positioned closely create both a dialogue and a symbolic triangular shaped georeference.

On the outward face of the largest sculpture, part of a large spiral radiates outward. The spiral an important and easily deciphered symbol represents growth, evolution, connectedness and interdependence; and about the power and presence of nature and the dramatic seasonal changes of New Brunswick.

The second sculpture is carved here and there to reveal layers representing amongst other things: the layers that make up the society, the people of Sussex and a complex, proud history. The slightly elliptical smoothly polished top face seems ready to receive nature's bounty and subtly references the importance of the rivers and streams of Sussex.

The smallest sculpture appears to be in an optimistic state of becoming, in which the future is malleable and anything is possible. Suitably child sized to reference and engage the next generation, a large aperture pierces the stone forming a window from the past to the future.
