Daniel Webby, Costa Concordia, 2012, jigsaw puzzle pieces, clay, plaster, cardboard, aluminium prop. Photo: Xin Cheng
Daniel Webby‘s sculptures are more opaque in their intention, and less retinally alluring. His works are ‘raw’ in the sense that they emphasise the rough unpainted surfaces of the materials used and focus on creative thinkers like Buckminster Fuller (there is bamboo geodesic dome that contains a lecture space for social interaction) and Jean Luc Godard.
Godard’s 2010 film Socialism features the luxury liner Costa Concordia that later got wrecked off the coast of Italy. This ship provides the name for one of Webby’s sculptures, a precariously propped up ‘screen’ made of thick plaster and clay. One side is of curved and bulbous wave shapes that look like combed ice cream or crunchy meringue. Its back has embedded in its surface assorted pieces of a jigsaw, some connected and ‘legible’, of what looks like Mt. Fuji.
There is an implication here that just as one day Mt. Fuji, a volcano, will re-erupt, so will the extravagant lifestyle that luxury liners like the Costa Concordia and Titanic represent inevitably collapse. In other words, another bloody communist revolution is a palpable reality – not a fanciful pipe dream.

I found a piece of a puzzle on a sidewalk in Toronto, and I attempted to return it to its owner by making a “found” poster and posting it on the street where I found the piece. No one ever responded, though, and the poster was completely gone after just a few days.
I also made 10 replicas of the puzzle piece, painted in acrylic on cardboard, seen here as exhibited in Material Concerns at the Centres des arts actuels Skol in Montreal in 2008.
In 2009 I painted a 35 x 35” acrylic painting depicting how I found the puzzle piece, and I cut a hole in my painting for the original found piece to fit into, thus completing the puzzle. I then cut up the painting in to puzzle pieces, put it in a box, and left it in a thrift store in Lethbridge, Alberta. Documentation of this was shown in Small Things Forgotten, a project for the Southern Alberta Art Gallery’s “Into the Streets: Avenues for Art” 2009 exhibition series.
