A sculpture that explores humanity's struggle to walk healthy line when utilizing the assets we receive from nature. This sculpture is dedicated to everyone who's been affected by the opioid crisis.
Nakusp-born and based sculpture artist Kate Tupper spent years working in trades and heavy construction after graduating from the ‘C’ level welding program in 2004. This work informs her artistic practice, as does a lifelong love of craft, nature, and ecology fostered by growing up beside forest and orchards, on the beach and in the garden. Kate spends her summers as lead to the Shambhala Music Festival site’s art team, designing, facilitating, and mentoring large-scale multi-media installations.
Kate’s intricate steel piece, They Flew Like A Flash, explores humility's struggle to walk a healthy line when utilizing the assets we receive from nature.
