Living and working in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, artist Jim Unger works primarily in metals with an emphasis on copper, taking it to new and unexpected places with the addition of colour and patinas. With a background in wood-working and cabinetry, his work has evolved from simple garden objects to large sculptures and contemporary works of art.
Connect explores the process and connections between thinking and doing – how a thought is taken and transformed into a beginning (many sketches), a middle (more sketches, a model or two), and finally, a work of art which emerges fully formed.
