Works in Progress

 

I first started work with the Rare and Endangered Species Trust in Namibia in 2004. I soon realized that the research centre was a very interesting place and that the people running it were very dedicated to their work saving the most endangered animals in Namibia. I returned three times to do field research, some interpretive work and animal handling, mostly with a rare species of vulture, the Cape Griffon Vulture. In late 2013 I returned after a gap of seven years to create another sculpture for the centre, this time of a six meter tall giraffe. It is on display at the research centre and will be sold to help support the continuing work done by the gang of volunteers and the woman who spearheaded the whole thing, Maria Deikmann.

 

Art Projects 2013

 

Creations in 2013 included several commissions and many pieces created in the Brackendale Art Gallery studios thanks to the owners, Thor and Dorte. A piece for public display financed by the Whistler Museum and Archives Society and a large installation now displayed at Selkirk College were among the more exciting creations of 2013.

Creations 2012-11

 

It was with extreme pleasure that I created these artworks in the past few years. Many of them were created in the studio at the Brackendale Art Gallery in British Columbia. With the support of Thor and Dorte the owners, I was able to weld and cut my way into an artist's heaven.  Other art was created in my studio in SW France.

More artwork can be seen at www.christinanick.com where you can also see other mediums such as painting and drawings in my sketchbook.
