Journey is a
composition of twelve carved wooden blocks. The
twisting and overlapping design passes between blocks and
extends beyond their edges. Various colors of paint
(mostly blues and greens) were rubbed into the carved
areas, emphasizing the texture and creating a subtle
blend of colors.
Journey is the last
available piece in a series of fourteen similar
sculptures. The series was inspired by wooden printing
blocks. Years agos, I had carved some blocks for
printing. After using them for their intended purpose, I
set them on my desk. I came to appreciate them as small
sculptures, removed from their original intent. The
residual inks in the carved areas contrasted nicely with the
exposed wood. After having those blocks on my desk for
years, I decided to put that effect to use in a wall
sculpture, and the series began.
These three pictures were taken at
different times, so the lighting is different. The
colors in the second detail are probably most true.
