Some of the new work is more simple. As always, more views of this work can be requested.
Curveball, 2015 39″h x 23″w x 10″d
Worked a long time on this one. Hoping less is more. Spent time adding and subtracting, trying and rejecting. I see this as if not one more or one less element should be included. Haiku. Maybe another view is in order here.
The two curved parts which make up the base are from the same Captain’s chair. Primary colors dominate. The longer I have this piece the more understandable it is to me. It sits outside of my usual composition.
Animal Shadows, 2015 (still in an exhibition: approx. same size as others; the crown makes it slightly taller)
Another thinly orchestrated piece. The curvy loop is a metal tine from an old hayrake. Perhaps influence from my husband’s work. A bent wood chair leg makes up the crown. Part of a find of an old wooden croquet set provides color here. All gone now, it was a thrill to use those pieces that reminded me so much of my childhood. Hardware from the window used in a different way fixes some shapes in place.
Pattern, 2015 39″h x 23″w x 10″d
This piece is simple on one side, not so on the other.
Had fun with the dremel tool making fake wood grain. Another bent wood element is present here, along with a “chip” off my husbands old wooden scrub brush, repeating lines in a different way.
Thinly Orchestrated, 2015 (on exhibition, similar size as others)
Fine contrasting colors of aqua and orange make up the base; most other elements are a washed gray. The focus is a kind of crescent shape, repeated in different ways.
Lastly, dear Louise, an image of “Play” in situ. Beautiful morning.
