Surface Form#7 "Building-Lantern"
By Scott Eunson
Dec 21.2010 – Mar 19.2011
The "Building Lantern" is a site specific piece for the Stantec Window Gallery that references the act of creating architecture through representation. It is composed of a network of hand-drawn lines that have been cut out from a planar material and assembled in to a three-dimensional form. Light is added to intensify the difference between interior and exterior and to give warmth to passers-by during the cold, dark winter months.
Scott Eunson is a local Toronto artist working in various mediums, creating structural forms that examine the relationship between object and representation and exploring the grey areas between one, two and three dimensions.
Stantec Window Gallery
Formerly the home of the McGregor Sock Factory, the Stantec Window Gallery is located in Toronto's historic Garment District at the corner of Spadina Avenue and Wellington Street West. In an effort to 'give back' to the city; economically, environmentally and culturally; the original retail entrance to the McGregor Sock Factory was reconceived as a contemporary art gallery to be open and experienced by all: pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, streetcar riders, skateboarders and vampires, free of charge. Installations rotate on a quarterly basis, on the solstice and equinox.
