Steel Life - an exhibition of sculptural work by Ruben Irons

Opening Night at Marigold Cultural Centre Art Gallery, Truro, NS
Show runs until April 30th, 2009

Ruben Irons’ STEEL LIFE exhibition is inspired by growth in nature and the process of forging. The pieces were created at the end of a long winter, as the land around him slowly came to life. It is this organic growth that Irons explores as his subject matter. Heating and hammering steel, he allows the material to guide him into creations of movement and fluidity. A piece is complete when it gives the feeling of continued growth.

Watch for Steel Life on Eastlink Television throughout the month of May (stay tuned for specific times.)
