Three Studies in Material and Craft.
Does an object have a binary state of either organic or artificial? Or does it exist on a spectrum, slowly transforming from one to the other. This duality is explored by affecting and altering the tree trunk – augmenting and highlighting the object's qualities.
Can an object possess mass without matter?
Inspired by Naum Gabo and Barbara Hepworth, wire is used to create the perception of object whilst in reality occupying no space. This allows context and sculpture to become one.
Taking the wood's inherent limitations and instead using them as suggestions they can define the piece of art. Vines flow as grain moves. Stems rise and fall as the wood is carved away.
