C-Train and Sun Meets Moon (2009)
From the street the paintings, as seen through the horizontal bank of columns, suggest the kind of movement one detects out of the corner of one’s eye. This is especially so with motorists who pass this site on a daily basis. It is hoped that this encourages interest in the energy and mood of the lobby bringing visitors into the building.
At 18’ feet high and 12.5’ at its widest, the sculpture's presence at the Banker's Court Building in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is defined by its scale and gestural movement. Pepper's vision manifested as a sculpture of monumental scale that accentuates the arrival and entry experience while not overwhelming or crowding the site.
