Sculpture by John Dickson at Indigo Art

Canadian John Dickson has a celebrated exhibition history starting in the late 1990s. His earthwork structures of that period resemble branch and limb shelters one might discover in the woods. His sculpture later came to parody scenes of industrial accidents using mechanical and theatrical devices to create kinetic installations where bubbles surfaced from underwater pressure tanks shaped so the resulting emissions spelled out words and phrases when they breached the surface. He built model houses that lowered into pools, sinking mechanically to resemble flooded dwellings. In a wall-mounted wooden model with wool, he re-enacted the long descent of a crippled Lancaster bomber, and made sculptures of small-scale lake boats sunk to the gunwales.
