The Work of Wolves A gigantic sheep is quickly revealed to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. This work began as an oversized stuffy in Malaysia, and then modified into its current form using a mixed media approach, typical of this artist’s style. The 13 foot high art piece is designed to be movable and is part of the Apple Blossom Parade roster. The piece alludes to how Uncommon Common Art operates in the public realm, and prompts the use of the ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ metaphor as a basis for the work. Public art can be a powerful tool when deftly wielded, though typically unrecognized because it is also a valued experience. In addition, the species dynamic is apt for the rural environment where this artwork is exhibited. UCA gratefully acknowledges the support of Arts Nova Scotia Special thanks to

Jessica Winton An advocate for art in the public realm, Winton often creates performative/sculptural installations to provoke civic engagement on socio-political issues. Her recurrent experience as a prop builder in the Film & Television industry has influenced her atypical approach to material usage. Having recently attained an MFA from NSCAD University, she continues to investigate the role of the artist in the public spheres we occupy. Her art projects aim to unwind public ambivalence through common metaphor and intriguing illusion. Her home and studio are based in Halifax, though her projects often carry her off into the streets, woodland and open fields.
