A Tangential View of Eglinton West

Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky

Installed August 2023

Bronze with a dark brown patina

Located at Castle Knock Rd & Eglinton Ave W (Northeast side)

Angle View - R and T .HEIC

This sculpture - A Tangential View of Eglinton West - presents a frozen perspective of both sides of Heddington to Avenue Road on a New Year's Day.

Capturing the constellations overhead, the bronze wedge viewing device invigorates a sculptural still, in the form of a bronze tourist marker. As the city changes around it, the streetscape inside the sculpture will remain still.

The inside of the device simulates a view of Eglinton West at night, as the moonlight reflects on the structure it will appear to light up, giving the scene a gentle, dream-like feel.

This sculpture was funded by: 

Beginning in 2019, The Eglinton Way Business Improvement Association began to invest in Artwalk, a public art installation on our street. The goal over the next 5 years is to bring 25 of these art installations (sculptures, statures, murals) into the neighborhood. It will be a beautiful place to walk, learn, experience, shop and enjoy.
