As an aside, I think it is unfortunate that works like this are not identified in some fashion. This work is not titled, attributed to the public art program, or identified as an artwork, nor is the artist's name given anywhere on or around the piece. It is essentially anonymous, and could simply be a bit of landscaping / waterscaping done as part of the development - as I had always assumed.
Despite its anonymity, I like the piece, and enjoy looking at it. The changing light during the day gives it many different looks. One day when I was casting about for something architectural to draw I decided that I would draw this.
The drawing has been exhibited three times, twice at the Architectural Institute of B.C., and once at the Daily Grind Cafe, Vancouver.
It is drawn with Pilot DR pigment ink pens, on OPUS coated drawing paper, 150 gsm weight. The paper is 15% rag and 85% alpha cellulose acid free, manufactured for OPUS by the company that makes the paper that Canadian money is printed on. The drawing is archivally matted with acid free 4-ply matteboard and liner, and framed in a 16" x 20" OPUS metal exhibition frame.
