The unexpected intersections of our lives have always been fascinating. Our disparate trajectories collide and create causal shockwaves across time and space that have lasting, irreversible impact. Although linearity exists neither in life nor in nature, the human mind attempts to impose order upon a seemingly disordered world. This series of wood sculptures explores that paradoxical impulse, as stark straight lines of metal penetrate the free-flowing wood grain, bringing a flash of order to randomness. Just like these carved paths in wood, collectively we strive to make our mark by blazing bright trails in a dark, dynamic universe.
These bright trails are as impermanent as the individuals who strive so mightily to create them. The reflective, light-bouncing quality of the metal demonstrates this impermanence with every passing moment. As daylight incrementally shifts around the piece, the dark wood absorbs it, but the metal seems to collect it and will, eventually, catch the full angle of the light and ash with brilliance, only to once again fade into the shadows.
This exhibition takes place in Cosentino’s showroom, manufacturer of Silestone & Dekton.
Exhibition is free, please RSVP for reception.
