Out/look

Mahon Park at 600 West Keith Road
City of North Vancouver

Out/look refers to the history and landscape of North Vancouver – surveyed and settled within the last century, the wild, forested landscape still present.

A bronze figure, standing high atop a cedar trunk, marks the presence of Mahon Park. As the viewer approaches the site, and moves around it, the figure is silhouetted against the sky. The figure is somewhat mythical, contemplative – she is looking far into the distance; a raven her companion.

This playful, evocative installation is both representational, and abstracted by whimsy, suggestions of childhood stories, memories of nature, and a sense of myth. The artwork is layered with readings, yet accessible to all.
