Reading The Paper – John Hooper

By January 2, 2014photographs

A close up photo of a John Hooper sculpture on the bottom of King Street in Saint John, NB. I never noticed that the newspaper that one of the sculptures is holding contains the artists plaque with his name and credits. If anyone who doesn’t know John Hooper was a New Brunswick Sculptor who created many works that are currently on display here in Saint John. There is also a very awesome 18 minute documentary by the Film Board of Canada that outlines Hooper’s process. The Film is called John Hooper’s Way With Wood (77).
