These are large metal bike racks shaped like salmon, painted with red.

Artist Statement

During a meeting with the land developer to discuss the project, I sketched these salmon on a napkin and guessed at the measurements. The estimated measurements ended up making them quite large, too large for bike racks I think, so they ended up looking more like sculptures.”

Christina Nick works in a variety of media and often travels to different countries to create sculptures and draw in her travel sketchbook. Christina’s work is inspired by her travels and her work is known to create a sense of place for the viewer and reference issues from specific countries, which she portrays by using native animals. The representational subject of her sculptures are easily recognized and therefore approachable.
