I am the artist who made the “Wild Roses” installation for West Edmonton Mall. (Back Words, Mar 24 – 30, 2011) This art piece was commissioned by the mall and I based my sculpture on Alberta's official flower.
As for innovation and depth, those qualities are never in my mind when I'm creating a piece as I can't control what others will see in my work. I just work with the space and movement between what's there, and light and texture. When I was finished installing the piece I watched people stop and observe, little children pointing “flowers!” and old ladies agape—I was happy.
I agree with your comments on art and Marcel Duchamp—he is my favourite artist of all time—he was intelligent, groundbreaking and also unpretentious.
Thanks again for the great comments.
