I have been making works with the intent for them to be shown on a gallery wall. Obviously this is directing my work at a certain type of audience. I have been thinking about how my work tries escaping from the conventions of a wall. This work in particular shows two subtle changes in degrees forming the effect of the wood peeling away from the gallery wall. The back of the piece is almost more interesting than the front, so although it is intended to be displayed like this, maybe it is now more suited to be free standing. I do however like the fact that the viewer can peek behind the piece and see small wedges which are out of sight, it is like when you see the back of a painting and it is more interesting than the front. So in a way the piece is asking you to get up close and have a look.
I made the work out of scrap left over pieces of pine, planed, clamped, sanded, glued, cut and glued again. This process is quite familiar; I enjoy playing with compositions and the aesthetics of natural materials. Patterns of grain are intriguing.
