I’m thrilled to be able to publicly share the corporate art commission I created for Vancity Credit Union over the summer. It is on permanent display in the Community Stage room in their South Burnaby branch at 5064 Kingsway.

The piece is called, Interconnection: Altering the Landscape, and is created from repurposed topographic maps of Burnaby and surrounding areas.

My work is one of four pieces of art commissioned by Vancity for this newly renovated bank branch. It hangs together with work by Robi Smith (left), and Christina Norberg (center).

The fourth commissioned piece (and largest) is located in the reception area of the branch, and catches the eye as soon as you walk in. It is a beautiful installation of upcycled plates by Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell of Dear Human.

If you’re interested in checking out the work in person, the artists are planning a reception for January 12th, 2013. Stay tuned for more details.

These all look fantastic. Props to VanCity for supporting local artists and making their branch look way cooler at the same time!

Thanks Mary Anne. The branch is very modern and stylish too. There are about seventy more branches to be renovated over the coming years, and will hopefully include more opportunities for artists.
