This piece comes box framed with glass, framed in a white wooden frame.
I like creating geometrical patterns through various mediums. I like them to be precise in terms of their shape and construction. Using threads and nails has been one of the many creative ways I could use to make geometrical shapes and have fun with them. Each nail is hammered individually and then I weave the threads through the nails one by one by hand until I get the desired shape and its placement onto the sculpture. Together these shapes create a beautiful complexity and the fine lines of threads mixing with each other create a beautiful, intricate pattern. Around 200 meters of thread is used to make this art piece. The plywood in the background is varnished with satin medium to highlight the intricate natural wooden patterns.
