Portal, steel frame, used log salvage ropes, approx. 90″ x 66″ x 24″, 2017
Private Collection, Victoria, BC, Canada, 2020
Portal is a steel-framed sculpture comprised of discarded ropes obtained from a third generation local log salvor. The artist removed log dogs from multi-coloured pick-up lines and then spliced a selection of these short 3-ply nylon and polysteel ropes together over two base layers obtained from one large continuous piece of tow-line.
