Burrard Arts Foundation is a non-profit organisation that promotes innovative art projects and installations throughout the city. You may have already seen the fruits of their labour as they launched a project earlier this year at Canada Place: a brilliantly hypnotic large-scale interactive sculpture installation by Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin.
Artist Hot Tea a.k.a. Eric Reiger has been working as an artist in residence at BAF Studios this summer. In addition to a couple of outdoor site specific works around the city, Hot Tea has also created two pieces at BAF studios. The first piece is a two foot wide plank that leans from floor all the way up to ceiling beam. It is completely covered in yarn, each thread wrapped in perfect order delineating impeccable bound rows of colour stacked upon each other. The plank is a rainbow monolith, a solid force of geometry, angles and lines. It is in high contrast to the second more ephemeral work.
