About the artist:

“I am a sculptor and fabricator from East City in Peterborough who has recently moved to Douro-Dummer. Initially trained as a welder I then attended NSCAD for my BFA before studying abroad at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. My work often involves found objects, such as tools, that have been reworked and overgrown with steel foliage based on the native plants from around my farm. I am often brought heirloom tools to work on as commissioned pieces. My practice revolves around notions of labour, history and the natural world.” – Garrett “Owen” Gilbart
