About Logan Gilday

Growing up in the Yukon, being surrounded by nature and spending time in the bush with his family has instilled Logan with a love of wood, and his years at Emily Carr University of Art and Design were spent honing skills which he has applied to his many wood-related projects since graduating in 2010.

Logan's current artwork is driven by a constant desire for him to see his visions brought to life. When starting a project, he tends to seek potential in unusual pieces of wood, often chunks which have been discarded or deemed unusable elsewhere. He favours large and heavy objects, and will often combine metal components to the wood for structure or visual balance. Combined with his ever child-like spirit, Logan's pieces also tend to have an air of whimsy and remind the viewer to forget rationality and allow their inner child to play.
