Description

The metal fence surrounding the gallery has feeding eagles and salmon cut from the steel, with river and forest scenes.

Artist Statement

The fencing surrounding the gallery was commissioned by Thor. Thor had the rod iron fencing installed and I made the designs based on their dimensions. The cutouts are eagles feeding on the salmon and eagles fishing for the salmon. I often create based on animals seen in my travels and the environment, and I enjoy creating animals in movement.”
