Stuart Kinmond expresses both a subtle sense of humour and deep reverence in Golden Gate Variations, his artistic tribute to the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Educated as an architect, his inner artist emerged in recent years and he is now creating full time as an artist in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. Lynn Thompson visited his studio in June 2012 to record this 20 minute conversation about specific images of the show, and his approach to art in general. An intriguing aspect of Kinmond’s project, that began a few years ago and zoomed into the finish line for the anniversary, is that it is inspired by (and set to) J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations. The show is on display (with prints for sale) until July 5th 2012 in San Francisco at the Fort Mason Center.
