Jim Unger

Abbotsford, BC

An ode to the fathers of modern architecture, including Frank Lloyd Wright.

Living and working in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, artist Jim Unger works primarily in metals with an emphasis on copper, taking it to new and unexpected places with the addition of rich colour and warm patinas. With a background in woodworking and cabinetry, his work has evolved from simple garden objects to large sculptures and contemporary works of art.

Frankie, a deftly balanced and stately piece constructed of copper, solid wood, steel and paint, is an ode to the fathers of modern architecture, particularly the master, Frank Lloyd Wright.
