Don Francis

Delta, BC

Delta sculptor Don Francis’ primary medium is steel. Initially, his focus was purely figurative – eagles and blue heron studies – though lately he’s exploring abstraction more and more. Entirely self-taught, the retired welder recognizes and embraces the therapeutic benefits of creating art.

Tsunami is delightful – a testament to his creativity and skill. An amalgamation of two pieces, the two curving crescents and three petal-shaped oval strands one inside the other invite speculation. The ebb and flow of a monster wave over the land? Regardless of the interpretation, the openness employed here is integral to the whole.
