Formations & Layering
The natural world around us consists of layers and these layers record time. In this concept I want to explore layering in the natural world around us, how these layers have recorded time and how time has shaped them.
In this series of work I have stripped wood into thin layers, manipulating and reconstructing these layers into free form compositions. I then shape through the layers to reveal not alone the honesty of the structure but the sculpted form which is a unique collaboration of man and material.
