Flank II

1978
Mia Westerlund Roosen
Concrete, steel, copper. 1 1/2' h. x 12' l.

A product of a specific time, place, and approach to materials, Mia Westerlund Roosen's sculpture was actually made in the Vancouver Art Gallery. She emphasized a process which joins together the dense forms of sculpture and the surface qualities of painting. When placing it in the landscape, she had to consider the work's scale and texture; she therefore, chose an intimate space where trees act as boundaries.
