Sack Race was inspired by the childhood pastime that alternately induced laughter, aggression, embarrassment, exhaustion... Playful fun or fierce competition? Sack Race captures everyone’s feelings and memories of the game.
Roger Golden’s sculptures explore the human condition with candour and compassion. His works are typically life-sized, figurative, and narrative based. He works entirely by hand, creating original pieces from the unusual medium he has devised for himself: a combination of burlap and cement or resin. Roger is a member of the International Sculpture Center, USA, and is an elected member of the Sculptors Society of Canada and the Society of Canadian Artists. He has exhibited widely in solo and juried group shows across North America. In 2009, his sculpture, Walking Man, won a Sculptors Society of Canada award. Baba, an homage to his grandmother, is in the permanent collection of the Shevchenko Museum. In 2012, his installation, Sack Race, won an artistic merit award at SculptureWalk Castlegar, British Columbia. Sack Race is currently touring the American Mid West in a series of juried, public sculpture exhibitions.
