North Toronto Memorial Arena
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Please enjoy Gary's statement below.
Peaceful surroundings can be found on a beautiful clean piece of ice. A canvas on which to skate and glide without all the unnecessary outside noise or scratch of the toe picks. With Figures, one can be trained to use one's blades as silently as a whisper of a paint brush. The blade like the brush can find the glide from the stroke.
A skater, as also an artist, may find a new self respect that translates to each other, history, and the future. This may become a collective peaceful philosophy and experience that can help to eradicate the hostilities that plague humanity both within ourselves and outwardly towards others. Skating Figures is a beautiful and peaceful experience that is gentle and thereby can unite the ice world and the outside world.
I hope you are inspired by these analogies and my painting of the Golden Tree. Here the tree is seen with a golden new light as a metaphor for you and the amazing sport discipline of Figures.
See you in Toronto!
