Below is just a glimpse of the many thoughtful sculptural, photographic and mixed-media tributes to the region that greet residents and visitors as they make their way through the spaces of Queen’s Marque. This collection will continue to grow and inspire.
Internationally renowned Canadian artist Chris Dorosz’s four painted sculptures delight the viewer as they enter the lobby of the Queen’s Marque office. These sculptures recast the concept of portraiture as an examination of how our coastal terrain and weather are at play on our bodies.
A resident Halifax sculptural ceramic artist, Laura-Jean Forrester’s work, located in the elevator vestibule of The Residences, is inspired by the flora and fauna of Nova Scotia. Forrester calls it a “living wall with a twist,” paying homage to the natural materials used in the building of Queen’s Marque itself.
Living and working in Nova Scotia since 1970, Macnab brings his self-taught background in woodturning and engineering to a series of carved spruce panels in The Residences lobby, transforming the indoors with this arresting sculptural reminder of the natural surroundings just beyond the property.
“Particle Painting Series”
Located in the elevator vestibule of the Queen’s Marque offices, Dorosz’s painting takes its cues from where the ocean meets the steps at the harbour side of Queen’s Marque, pondering the effects of how two opposing forces, land and sea, may live in harmony.
An internationally acclaimed Manchester artist who has called Canada home since 1992, David Spriggs’ standing sculpture in the office lobby invites the viewer in as a beacon within the Queen’s Marque structure. A wave-like form is painted on multiple transparent panes, referencing the strength and dynamism of both the ocean and the people of Nova Scotia.
