At the center of the piece it begins to twist and curve again. At this point the colour of the cladding transitions away from the warm, rusted tones at the hull and takes on a cooler palette more representative of the sea.


I decided to break the form into two waves at this point, one wrapping around either side of the vertical support. I see these supports as masts or as metaphors for the logged forests that provided for the mills of Burrard Inlet. On the reverse side the splitting curves lead to a turbulent seascape that acts in contrast to the warm, comfortable tones of the opposite side of the work. This side of the piece is more aggressive; the waves two paths turn back towards the curving form at the sculpture’s hull.
