"One must be entirely sensitive to the structure of the material that one is handling. One must yield to it in tiny details of execution, perhaps the handling of the surface or grain, and one must master it as a whole."
The idea of up-cycling materials is not new, nor is 3D art as I had used fabrics in previous art work. I am now using birch plywood cast-offs, my supplier of painting panels would have burned. I play around with the pieces. Balancing the shapes and spaces they define, gives birth to its form.
This recent foray has been most satisfying. Numerous decisions are made on the juxtaposition of the pieces in achieving harmony, balance and movement. What is most satisfying is viewing enclosed spaces and energy emanating from the connecting pieces, and then seeing the variations from different perspectives. For me what is important is that they reflect the ethos of Wabi Sabi, the Japanese aesthetics of beauty: Impermanent, Incomplete and Imperfect.
