Development Proposal
Christopher Harms

Plate Glass Gallery at NAC

Development Proposal is an installation that looks skyward to what will be, by starting at the foundation.  Creating vibrant sculptures with plexiglass, the artist uses a light and colourful ascetic to represent the heavy construction excavators that shift and shape our urban landscape.  The viewer is invited to discover the unique reflections, surfaces, and layering in the work as this rough and messy ordeal is now transformed by a luminous filter of wonder at what the future may hold.

Chris Harms is a self taught, Toronto-based artist. In 2012, Chris began working with acrylic plastics and was captivated by their transparency, electric edges, and colourful shadows.  All pieces are hand-cut and riveted together, lending a precise yet human touch to the work.
