Each year since 1987, beginning in June, Remic Rapids on the Ottawa River, becomes a gallery of balanced rock sculptures. The project continues until the winter weather naturally dismantles them back to the riverbed. The sculptures and the spaces created by them, establishes a composition, which is constantly changing in harmony with the nature of the river and weather.

Artist John Felice Ceprano began exploring the use of unaltered natural rocks in 1986. This led him to create balanced rock sculptures, ephemeral works that are dismantled by nature each winter. The rocks are millions of years old and are heavily fossilized with a rich variety of colour, texture and form that are unique to the Ottawa region. The sculptures are constructed entirely by hand using the "art of balance", combined with basic masonry skills to maintain structural integrity.

Artist

Pelletier has been colouring the streets for the past 18 years around the world, taking over from his elder brother .

Pelletier’s work arrests people young and old, trapping them in temporary trances. We smile as pedestrian traffic jams occur, the people stunned and still.

His work grabs people, if only for a second, it snaps them out from trudging along their daily errands and routines.

There is no time, no person, only space and the pursuit of balance.

Balance is calm ... it breathes life into the evolution of our consciousness; embrassing nature as 'truth' and seeing that 'all is one' and not separate, becoming one.
