Toronto Public Art: Barbara Hepworth’s “Parent 1”


“Parent 1” (1984), by Barbara Hepworth — Her modern work calls to mind Inuit forms.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

  1. I like the way that limb hangs down over the head of the parent. Do you think the tree is trying to add a hair do to the figure? 😊 the saying by Mr Thomas is so true!

    • Very cool — The “hair” from the tree limb is a different way of seeing things! Thanks for the nice comment on the quote as well. 🙂

  2. Hi — where is this? I want to go see it for myself. (I hope you’ll give locations in future, so readers can follow your lead and visit these works of public art themselves.) Thanks for bringing this to our attention
