The Wishing Well

Kelowna Art Gallery, Kelowna, BC - To Sep

This large-scale, site-specific sculpture, installed in the KAG’s Rotary Courtyard, is the creation of artists David and Jorden Doody. Known for their colourful paintings and mural projects, the pair conceived this work as a mural-sculpture hybrid, working it up virtually, as a digital graphic, before translating it into real-world materials and dimensions. Its curving shape, luscious hues and rippling patterns evoke West Coast leisure culture, from surfing to skateboarding to David Hockney-esque swimming pools.
