A one-man exhibition of sketches, drawings and notes, video / constructions / at the Art Gallery of Hamilton Ontario. Through ‘Times Corridor' is about the procees of time and the observations and sensibilities of Martin Hirschberg.
Moving Beyond “FOR THE BIRDS” – “THROUGH TIMES CORRIDOR” consisted of four, large separate, but integrated wood sculptures, Sanctuary, Altar, Seating & Pyre, that work together to create a large environmental scaled work. Here Martin delves into a feeling of foreboding, despair and abandonment, based on lonely, primitive structures, decaying objects and rotting canvas shrouds found in Georgian Bay.
Rejecting the persistent underlying pre-occupation with disintegration, decay, life & death, Martin abandoned sculpture as an artistic medium and returned to painting.
