Dave Dando

Nelson, BC 

The snowshoe hare tends the landscape, they observe us with bemusement and resignation. Our timeline is running.

Originally from Daylesford, Australia, Dando moved his family to Nelson nearly a decade ago. His unlikely first career as a professional rugby player soon made way for his love of art and his current profession of teacher. He loves scrounging through scrapyards to source material – its origins inspiring the story and his creations. Fabricated metal sculpture, industrial collage, multi-media assemblage and paper craft and forming are his passions.
Snowshoe Hare, constructed from steel and timber, is, like many of Dando’s pieces, a truly creative take on the animal kingdom. This hare tends the landscape, observing us with bemusement and resignation.
