Art Description

Sculpture: Wood, Environmental, shells, woodpecker feather and acorns on Wood, Other, Canvas, Stone and Bronze.

Originally a vintage, Victorian wooden oak print tray;

New work by British Artist Karen Neill BA Fine Art (Hons); Byam Shaw S/A at Central Saint Martins London University of Arts London

It measures Approx 45cm x 30cm.

Made of oak.

It can be hung on the wall, fixings attached, or it can be laid flat.

I have focused this collection of found pieces into each compartment of the tray.

At first it appears quite mysterious; the looker finds him/herself searching for balance, equilibrium, whether its colour, form, texture or associations - a natural deducing of the human eye.

I ethically collect objects from nature and I assemble these gems - here they are placed in various orders of form, inside the compartments of an original vintage Victorian oak, printer's tray which would have been used for the fonts of those times.

Each compartment contains a placed piece - the crow skulls, enamel painted and embellished, seed pods - dried and painted, shells, sticks, ribbons all assembled and permanently arranged.

Ive painted and embellished each piece intricately applying colour combinations, texture and form.

It can be hung on the wall portrait or landscape or simply placed on a surface.

There are prints available too.

For practicalities and keeping dust away easily, I'll include a special feather for dusting the tray, its gentle and effective.
