Port Moody Evergreen Station Art
The art depicts the life of the salmon from egg to smolt … the exodus of juvenile salmon to the ocean … then the adults’ return to the river years later to spawn and die – renewing the cycle of life. We leave home – to return again.
– Soren Henrich – Artist’s Statement
The challenge was to make the design as simple as possible for ease of fabrication, final assembly and installation; maintaining a dynamic juxtaposition from a limited palette of colours, and a variety of large and small forms, with layers and depth.
