Acme Animal

It is easier to hide in the studio than to do the bio bit – something in our shy or self effacing characteristics. Canadian House & Home did a bit of an artisan’s bit on us, so perhaps some quotes from someone else writing about us will do. "Those with an eye for the quirky will delight in the sculptures of artists Sue Parke and Don Gidley … her sense of whimsy, and Don"s eye for geometry and line merged in Acme Animal – clocks, shelves, and candleholders that come in eclectic shapes like animals, veggies, and weather vanes. In a studio filled with rivets, scroll saws, and sheets of aluminum, Don cuts and Sue paints. She uses bold combinations of colour to give the pieces life using brushstrokes adapted from stage painting (The pair met while working on theatre sets) We see our work as urban folk art … or folk art with an urban sensibility -Don and Sue
