Sculptor made a late-career switch only to see his masterpiece destroyed
After a successful career as a Toronto advertising executive, he took up art at 51 and won a major installation contest. The work was later dismantled without his knowledge
By James ADAM/ADAMS, Page S8
Toronto -- Haydn Llewellyn DAVIES always had a talent for art. While serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War, he won a competition to create a Victory Loan poster for the Allied war effort. Later, returning to Canada to enroll as a drawing and painting student in what is now the Ontario College of Art and Design, he was named "most promising young artist" in his graduating class of 1947.
But it was not until the early 1970s that he found his niche. By then a handsome father of two teenaged sons, and a highly successful and dapper executive at Toronto's McCann-Erickson Advertising Agency, Mr. DAVIES finally turned to the idiom that made his name in Canada and beyond as a sculptor.
His wife, Eva, an accomplished painter in her own right, supported his late-career change of gears.
"Eva and I agreed that this was not what we wanted to do," he said in 2005. "I wanted to get back into art, so I started tapering off [the advertising work]." As an executive with plenty of disposable income, he "had the opportunity to travel to many of the good and great museums of the world," and in the course of these travels, he became increasingly interested in sculpture, especially large-scale geometric steel works.
Although he had sculpted with clay in the late 1940s, "I always seemed to let it get too hard or too wet or too dry. It wasn't very satisfying." Steel, however, "was a new medium altogether."
He was 51 when he returned to school at the University of Toronto, to see whether he could master the manipulation of steel and wood into compelling abstract forms. He was accepted into the third-year fine arts program, specializing in sculpture. "I got hooked when I started welding steel."
Two years later, he was named the winner of an international competition that drew 150 entries for a large-scale outdoor sculpture to be installed near the entrance of Lambton Community College of Arts and Technology in Sarnia, Ontario The piece, Homage, was a powerful assemblage of laminated red cedar shapes, 9-by-3-by-6 metres, intentionally reminiscent of both the Welsh cromlechs (megalithic tombs made from circles of stones) he knew from his childhood in Wales (he had immigrated to Canada with his parents when he was about 9), and England's famous Stonehenge monument, which he toured at 31.
Another inspiration came from a visit Mr. DAVIES made in the late 1960s to Japan, where, in the words of Canadian art history professor Alison McQueen, he was seduced by "simplicity of Zen Buddhist gardens, the proportions of large-scale buildings and the curves of horizontal members of bridges and the entrance gates to… Shinto shrines."
His success at Lambton College came as a great surprise, he said. "I had no thought of winning, nor any idea of how I'd actually accomplish whatever I might come up with."
It had all started with a drive to Sarnia to visit the college. "I felt immediately that it was a marvellous piece of architecture, all striated concrete and glass, but it was cold. I wanted to humanize it. So the wood idea came to me easily."
Later, while travelling by train to Montreal on advertising business, he began to sketch ideas on a drawing pad. By that evening, he'd pretty much come up with the complete concept for Homage - "something that's never happened to me so quickly before," he said in 2005. "Or since."
The piece's success paved the way for more commissions, large and small. By 1976, he was out of the ad business entirely. Further travels got him interested in the work of Russian Constructivist sculptors such as Vladimir Tatlin, Antoine Pevsner and Naum Gabo. This, in turn, saw him produce large, geometric steel or aluminum constructions like the thrusting Space Composition installed in downtown Toronto's Trinity Square in 1984. A few years later, he was preparing what he called "planar constructions" - non-figurative mixed-media compositions of wood, cable, steel, aluminum, copper and bronze that were meant to be affixed to walls or stand freely on a floor.
Mr. DAVIES eventually had work in more than two dozen permanent collections, including the National Museum of Wales, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and Rome's National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art.
Yet as much as Homage was a breakthrough, it eventually proved to be the source of his greatest artistic heartbreak. In June, 2005, while recovering from a severe heart attack, he learned that Homage had been intentionally destroyed, without his prior knowledge or permission, by Lambton College's administration. The work, it appears, had been neglected for many years and was deemed a safety hazard.
College officials said the sculpture, commissioned by the college in the early 1970s for $10,000, had deteriorated so much that its lack of stability made it dangerous, especially to the children who liked to play around and under it.
"This is a blow to not only to me, but also to every artist and art work in Canada," Mr. DAVIES declared at the time.
At the time, Mr. DAVIES was too ill to revisit the site and his son Bryan DAVIES, a professor at Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough, Ontario, went in his stead. After inspecting and photographing the remains, Bryan DAVIES said whatever rot Homage had experienced was superficial. "Where there were teeth marks from the backhoe that took it down, you could smell cedar standing next to it. Knocking your fist on some of the beams, it rings solid; it beats like a drum."
Mr. DAVIES had held on to the original plans through the years and, for a time, it seemed likely that he would rebuild it. The cost of reconstruction was set at more than $100,000, and Toronto arts patron Lou ODETTE said he was willing to contribute $10,000. One possible location for the piece would have been the outdoor Odette Sculpture Park along the Detroit River in Windsor.
In the end, it all came to naught. In 2006, Mr. DAVIES sued for more than $1-million for, variously, breach of contract, violation of moral rights and "intentional infliction of emotional distress." Both the destruction and the suit attracted international attention, and it's anticipated that the case will be heard this year, or in early 2009, by the Ontario Superior Court.
Mr. DAVIES's passion for art continued right up to the day last month when he was admitted to Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital for treatment of a suspected aneurysm. He asked his youngest son, Trevor, to bring him his sketch pad "so he could pursue what he clearly saw as his calling."
His was "a mature creative mind," Prof. McQueen wrote, with reference to a 2003 exhibition of DAVIES maquettes at the Burlington (Ont.) Art Centre. "In an era dominated by video and digital art, when the meaning of visual culture is formed largely through political, social and cultural critique, and when the cult of the young artist seems to reign supreme," DAVIES unashamedly, unabashedly and fruitfully mined "the tenets of abstraction" dating back to the early days of the 20th century.
While Mr. DAVIES is a role model for anyone who longs to follow their dreams and can't quite work up the nerve, he also acknowledged having doubts about his career change. "I've looked back to those days and sometimes thought I was mad," he said in 2005. "But it really was the best thing I ever did."
Haydn Llewellyn DAVIES was born November 11, 1921, in Rhymney, Wales. He died in Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto on March 24, 2008, of complications relating to liver and lung cancer. He was 86. He is survived by Eva, his wife of 60 years, sons Bryan and Trevor, several grandchildren and one great-grand_son.
