About The Artwork

The Rockfish is inspired the origins of the marble and where it comes from on Vancouver Island. The marble is quarried near Skull Lake and is aptly named Orca Marble. It is unique in that it is from a glacier erratic that pushed the stone onto the forest floor where what was once prehistoric sea creatures at the bottom of the sea has metaphorically swam through time and found itself aging on the forest floor. The tannins of wood can actually be seen in the marvellous grain of the marble. The piece is beautifully balanced on a live edge piece of the same stone,

Kent Laforme a Japanese Canadian artist known for his contemplative marble sculptures. “Marble is my chosen medium for exploring the newness of something that has existed in one form or another since the beginning of time. The nature of this material resonates with the void, and offers a glimpse into the creation of something true. The origins of the material are the essence of my work and at the heart of my process. Somewhere, within the limits and possibilities of a stone, dwells a language beyond time and space. This is where I search for the shape of my ideas. “ Laforme studied under renowned Canadian artist John Greer at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and worked as his assistant in Pietrasanta, Italy. His work is influenced by Constantin Brancusi and Isamu Noguchi. Being half-Japanese, Laforme has a natural affinity for Noguchi’s East-West perspectives and how that sensibility manifests in art. For the past twenty years, Laforme has maintained a studio practice on the edge of the forest near PKOLS on Vancouver Island. It is with gratitude, that he respectfully acknowledges the language of the land and the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory my family lives, learns and works and the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
