Shayne Dark Art

Canadian, b. 1952

Poised between abstraction and representation, the artworks of Canadian artist Shayne Dark (b. 1952, Moose Jaw, SK) are often coated in eye-popping saturated pigments. His networks of steel branches or steel stones, indoor and outdoor iterations, are a contemplative intersection of the industrial and the organic.

In 2016, Dark exhibited at the Brooklyn Sculpture Center, where he was artist in residence. The same year, he was given a solo exhibition at the Albright Knox, NY. Dark has received six Ontario Arts Council grants and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. His work may be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections including Queen’s University, the Canadian Embassy in Prague, the City of Ottawa, the Federal Communications Commission, New York.
