Sculpture: Wood, Paint on Wood.
Tarkka is an aggressive, angular minimalist, monochromatic contemporary wall sculpture. It is constructed with birch panels, acrylic washes, walnut hardwood and completed with a semi-gloss lacquer distressed finish. The acrylic wash allows the wood grain to show through the paint and creates an almost marble-like appearance as the warm brown wood grain shows through the gradient white tones. Tarkka is a piece that focuses on the composition, balance, and form by using a limited monochrome color palette. The piece diffuses multiple opacities of white alluding to a sophisticated modern vibe. The gold metallic background shows through the negative space and adds an elegance to angular piece. Tarkka is angler and aggressive for a small piece and commands the space. To me it feels like a well used piece of machinery, perhaps a saw or a swept fighter jet from the 50's. Distressed and imperfect, it projects a feeling of age and modernism.
