Larry Kagan’s sculptures use light and shadow as an active agent in the work. Kagan constructs abstract metal three dimension forms. Looking at a piece of Kagan’s sculptural work without interaction with light, the pieces look like modernist constructions. When activated by light, however, the cast shadows of the works create representational images.  This metaphysical transformation of the sculptures is confounding, leaving the viewer to question the relationships of forms from object to refraction.

Stand In For Home


Stand In for Home is a multi-layered fibre rendering based on the kitchen in a previous home of the artist. Through this piece McCavour explores the vulnerability of thread in relation to the home as both things feel temporary and fragile. The creation of the piece required the artist to re-visit, remember and re-create a space that was once familiar, replacing it with a stand in, a synthetic, re-created version of home. This project was produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council.
