About:Jiri developed the idea for “Harmony” a number of years ago to express the concept of a harmonic relationship - supporting, helping and finding joy together. “Harmony” is a continuation of a previous work called “Balance” which portrays keeping all extremes in good balance. To Jiri, who hails from Europe, Canada has always been a symbol of freedom, tolerance and harmonic relationships. That is why he chose the Harmony motif for the Sculpture Symposium “Carved on the Canadian Shield”. It represents his vision of Canada and his hopes for a positive future for our country, the Sculpture Forest and the Haliburton School of Art + Design.
Carved on the Canadian Shield:
Four artists from three countries visited Haliburton for a three week sculpture symposium in 2017 in celebration of Dysart 150, Ontario 150, and Canada 150. Beginning with a block of limestone, each artist was tasked with creating a piece that reflected the theme of carving on the Canadian Shield.
