   Artist: Don Foulds (Canadian , born Saskatoon, 1952) has worked in several media, including welded steel, carved wood and marble, metal furniture, and cast bronze. Mshimi's Walk, assembled spontaneously from a stack of precut steel elements, employs a process derived from Sir Anthony Caro, the leader of the 1977 Emma Lake Artists' Workshop. Using this method, Foulds would allow the process to call forth the final image. As he laid out the sculptural elements for this work, they suggested the shuffling walk of a Japanese woman in a kimono-an image reflected in the sculptor's title. After working for many years Saskatoon, Foulds now teaches at Memorial University in Corner Brook Newfoundland.
