This is a piece for the Canadian exhibition. When we were there we saw an exhibition of an artist who had started off with fairly natural work and who had progressed to more abstraction. One of his works involved numbers. When we came back I was looking through some photos and the shape of the 5 suggested a nice form to play with. What does 5 mean to me? Well I have a family of 5, I am in my 50�s,and to a degree I guess to each of us there would be some relationship. One of the things I did like about the piece was that by doing it so large it took away from the mundane 5�s we all write to make it something impressive in its own right. This piece is currently on view at Jinks Creek winery.. Tonimbuk.
