Sculpture: Wood, Paint on Wood.
The piece is constructed of solid mahogany and the painted silver metallic area is finished in automotive quality metallic paint with gloss lacquer. The high gloss finish which provides elegance and contrasts greatly to the organic mahogany wood grain.
The inspiration for this piece in terms of design and color came from the mid century modern movement. I love to combine the warmth of organic wood tones with clean modern colors and lines. In this case, the gold metallic and white tones suggest a 1950's color palette when combined with rich warm mahogany. The design harkens back to the sputnik style lighting, wall sculpture and mirrors that were popular during this time. I love to use these pieces for inspiration because they managed to look both organic and futuristic at the same time. The force of the mahogany jutting in towards the center implies inward energy, while the pinlines and shiny metallic areas are a nod to one of my biggest inspirations, Frank Stella. The name comes from the design where all the lines of force converge on the center point. To me the piece can be a metaphor for the business of our lives sometimes. Life can feel like everyone and everything are squeezing us and the pressure is constantly building up. The piece is finished (Sides are finished) and wired to hang.
