Conel O’Regan creates unique and original hand-crafted furniture. He keeps the natural aspects of the forest alive in each design as he highlights the scars, knots, and imperfections of wood. From ideas to completion, Conel finds that inspiration for his work is influenced by his surroundings and materials. It always starts with a walk in the forest.
Behind the Iron Forest
Conel is part of an art collaboration with Brendan Duggan and Bonnie Bews. The show is an exploration of how the artists interpret the landscape as it pertains to their personal Muskoka landscape experience. Themes of mysticism, natural phenomenon and spirtualism are explored. The work includes 2D and 3D collaborations as well as their individual pieces. Take a walk with the artists into the Iron Forest and discover what lives in the darker recesses of their imagination and reality.
