Door of Reconcilliation
Walnut, Fibre-optics, Silk, Red Brick, Copper
The idea behind the Door of Reconciliation was sparked via the delightful surprise of an image revealed through the action of running a 1/2 inch Walnut board through a bandsaw. When the two halves were placed side-by-side, wings emerged.
From this, I carved into the grain to highlight the wing pattern. In the centre, below the intersecting halves, a gothic inspired shape was cut out of the board. The board was then framed in a shadow box, with the addition of back and interior door set off by a vine, optic lights and a red brick floor.
This piece is meant to be hung on the wall, with the depth of the shadow box frame playing into the idea of interior space.
All of my work is made of high quality materials and to museum standards.
