David Hind (b.1965) refers to himself as “thing maker”. Hind is a fabricator of conceptual and representational artworks, furnishings, instruments, and other functional objects; each of which is exclusively rendered from recycled and reclaimed materials. His work introduces a quality of finesse to the handling of scrap yard material, weaving cultural, political and ecological subject matter into compelling contemporary narratives.
Salvaged Landscapes is an apt description of both the materials and the theme behind Canadian artist Dave Hind’s work. Hind creates meticulously rendered landscapes which often examine the meeting of the natural and the constructed. The artworks are unexpectedly assembled out of reclaimed aluminium siding which is cut, carved and layered into a mosaic of texture arid colour, this ongoing body of work depicts the intersection between rural and urban landscapes, often documenting specific trees who share their space with the manufactured city scape.
Hind's installation works can be found in public, private and corporate collections in both Canada and the United States, he has exhibited throughout Canada, the USA and abroad since the outset of his career in the early 1990's.
Dave Hind currently lives and works in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.
