Figures in Motion by Al Henderson
Figures in Motion, created by St. Albert-based artist Al Henderon, combines the disciplines of painting and sculpture to create an artwork that celebrates movement and motion. In creating the work, the artist thought about the Downtown Community Arena and the activity that will animate it: “These places have a sense of community, and are a little wild sometimes, a bit proud and a whole lot of fun.” Bold, enticing and free-flowing, the work centres on a skaters and changes when viewed from many distances and angles by both pedway and rink users. The closer you get to the artwork, details such as pucks, skates, gestures and small figures reveal themselves.
