Our World Tuesday
My Corner of the World
I walked past this sculpture with a friend last week, and she commented on it. I was annoyed with myself that I couldn't remember the story behind it. I searched my blog and didn't find any mention of it, so that made me feel better.
Lineal Order - George Boileau, 1989
Located at 71 Simcoe St. on the steps of the Symphony Place condominium, the man appears to be a little stern but then you see the little boy along with the architectural motif on the wall.
Behind him on the wall is ‘his shadow’.
The clothing is timeless. The motif on the wall suggests a simple home, also timeless, the shape that all children learn to draw. A simple structure, embossed on a high rise luxury condominium building.
