Marks and gauges in the surface reveal the labour-intensive process that took place while a perfect hourglass form emerged. The tall, slender pieces make reference to the human figure creating an interactive and spatial relationship with the viewer.
The prints be considered untraditional drawings in which the physical layering process captures the fragility and texture of the wood on a two-dimensional picture-plane.
Through the repetitive act of mark-making, the accumulation of line creates a visual tension between the flatness of the surface and the illusion of spatial depth. The continuous layering technique takes place until the work reaches a point at which it hovers between representation and abstraction. The essence of the original chandelier remains, while the viewer’s attention is brought to the formal element of line and the physicality of the mark-making process.
