Art Description

Sculpture: 3D Sculpting, Wood, Environmental, Charcoal on Wood.

in my artistic practice i am always exploring the natural properties of wood. in this one i am exploring how the wood splits and cracks as it drys, which is normally seen as a failure or defect, but i see it as a natural pattern which is unique to that piece of wood and shows that it is a living material it adds a rawness to the work. I have highlighted the cracks with burning which adds depth to the wood beyond the external grain which wood is know for.
