Douglas Bentham: The Tablets

Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History, Nelson, BC - Mar 2 – May 26

by Robin Laurence

Saskatoon artist Douglas Bentham is nationally and internationally recognized for his abstract sculptures, executed across a range of scale and mediums. Whether large or small, in steel, bronze or wood, his art is, he says in his artist’s statement, “rooted in the Modernist tradition, which embraces growth and transformation.” Equally poetically, he continues, “I enter into a kind of prayer with the material, with the goal of creating a rhythm that will carry me through many days in the studio.”
