From his studio in James Bay – the former home of renowned B.C. sculptor and Limner collective co-founder Elza Mayhew – David Hunwick continues to produce evocative sculpture, as he’s done for over 35 years. Recently re-elected President of the Vancouver Island Sculptors Guild, his skilled work has earned him high regard.
Hunwick’s Janus features the stylized torso and head of a Goddess, his own take on the Roman God. Vertically accentuated, the narrow, limbless figure is serene in demeanour – conveying mystery and radiant beauty both, an intriguing study of the feminine form. The obvious two-faced image can be seen as a metaphor for double standards and how some present alternative ‘truths’.
