Series 6

1990-96 | In 1909 the Burgess Shale Formation was discovered near the Canadian town of Field, British Columbia. The deposits contained fossils of some of the earliest recorded life on Earth, dating back 505 million years during the Cambrian period. In 1989 Rubinoff became fascinated by the deposits, as well as by the larger process of evolution. The sculptures of Series 6, which Rubinoff made over an extended period of six years, draw on the fossilized forms found in the Burgess Shale, and reflect on the relationship between natural history and art history. “The meaning of the Burgess Shale to me”, he recalled, “established that the exploration of form and its rapid evolution with which I was involved as an artist was a phenomenon rooted in nature itself.”
