Corrine Hunt’s concept for this sculpture is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water; a drop of water that creates a swirl as the air affects its surface. The whorl-shape created by this abstract notion has produced the forms of an Eagle, on the left side of the panel, and an Orca; its body elusively curving around the panel’s right side. Hunt has continued to play with this whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the surface of the panel and invite the viewer to explore the “water’s” surface. This sculpture has been crafted from a composite material meant to evoke argillite.

Corrine Hunt is a Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit artist who was born in Alert Bay, BC in 1959, and has been creating art since 1985. Her many works include engraved gold and silver jewelry and accessories, custom furnishings in carved stainless steel and reclaimed wood, modern totem poles and other sculptural installations. She co-designed the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Medals, and the jacket worn by the 2018 Canadian Olympic snowboarding team. Hunt was honoured with the National Aboriginal Achievement Award in 2011.
