Art Description

Sculpture: Resin on Paper.

The pyramid structure almost resembles a fighting arena, where gladiators of old fought for their freedom and country. Chess is an ancient game of strategy and war, a game of patience. This chess board adds to the drama, a feast for the eyes as well as an exciting new layout to defeat opponents.

Each cube have been hand cast, sanded and polished before being stacked into an abstract chess board. There are a total of 256 cubes, half of which contain an origami cross.

The Bronze and Aluminium chess pieces originated from paper designs, each piece taking around three days to perfect. They were then made into a mould and cast piece by piece. They are all designed to take an abstract form of the traditional chess pieces, recognisable but different, a new take on a venerable game.
