By definition burgeon means to begin to grow or increase rapidly; to flourish; to put forth young shoots. The sculpture Burgeoning is a symbolic acknowledgment of the historic importance of the Wallace and McDowell site as it has been recognized for its part of the historic growth of and prosperity in North Vancouver, resulting from the introduction of electricity in 1906.

This contemporary stainless steel and red cedar sculpture represents the concept of 'entering traditional territory' as one enters Mosquito Creek Marina / Squamish Nation land from the North Vancouver waterfront. The sculpture is about returning to ancient wisdom and ancient knowledge that has been lost in our recent industrial era.

Inspired by the former Electric Marine building located on the site, Nebula Garden explores the idea of electricity as fluid energy, an ephemeral condition where everything exists only in the moment and ceases to be, and is then transformed into something that is continually reinterpreted. Realized in cast glass, the artwork infuses the space with renewed vitality by stimulating the senses as it captures light, inviting the viewer to a place of softness, permeability and reflection.

These four Salish designed salmon represent mature male and female salmon that are born in local rivers, make their way to the sea as fingerlings, then after four years return to the waters of their birth to spawn, die, and repeat the great cycle of life once again. The female salmon arches downward to symbolize the laying of eggs and the male salmon arches upward, representing the moment of fertilization.

This Salish salmon house post marks the entrance way to the City of North Vancouver. The four Salish heads on the house post represent the four species of salmon: sockeye, pink, coho and chum that return from the sea that has nourished them to the local rivers of their birth, to reproduce, die and begin the eternal cycle of creation once more.
