July 24, 2014- Castlegar Sculpture Walk Sculpture of the Day “Day By Day”

“Day By Day” is a sculpture crafted from modern resin compounds and can be found amongst other pieces on Columbia Avenue in front of Kootenay Market. This free flowing compact sculpture was created by Regine Neumann from Quebec. To find out more about her other work (and past works that have been part of Castlegar’s Sculpture Walk) click here.

To me this sculpture is aptly named and very fitting for this point in my blog series on Sculpture Walk. It has seemed like days have just been passing all merging together lately building up into something bigger and about to peak lately. I think this piece really captures that well, when you let things happen naturally beautiful things can happen, like “Day By Day”. Neumann really lets the material and feel of a piece dictate how the art will come together and I think that “Day By Day” is a perfect example of the freedom she allows her sculpture to enjoy. I also really like that the sculpture is not perfectly white, like even the most perfect days we enjoy as humans there always seems to be a little something more.
