Twist 1.5

Sculpture created from Douglas fir in the form of a spiral motif.
Twist 1.5

Twist 1.5 is located in Major’s Hill Park, in Ottawa.

This work, created from Douglas fir, echoes the spiral motif, which is common in nature — and in the works of its two artists:

  • Alex Wyse, a local artist, and
  • Ken Guild, from Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.

The public actually had the opportunity to watch the artists in the park, at work on this piece.

Twist 1.5 is one of three sculptures commissioned in 1978 for display in urban parks in Canada’s Capital Region.
