Art Description

Sculpture: Wood, Metal on Wood, Steel.

"At first glance, the detail of Bester's work is composed of is the stuff that becomes Windows screen-savers; the uncompromising geometry looks like simulation. But on closer inspection, the crafting of the wood becomes the embodiment of tenderness. Discarded objects are reincarnated as gateways to visual awe, showing plainly the time and patience that must have been used to make them. In Snakes and Ladders –Legacy Knot, five ladders command the gallery floor. The wood is faded to grey and is carrying only the most belligerent of paint stains. While the title tells us the form is a knot, the imagination takes liberties because this is a time for ‘play.’ The composition appears to be a prehistoric arachnid in the throes of its death rattle. There is a sense, even in its’ stillness, that something profound is responsible for this structured entanglement. With this piece, as with her other work, the invitation is to a hushed beholding, Bester’s sense of ‘play’ is inclusive of interiority.'' - Sinazo Chiya
