Dear Louise, some of the pieces have more complicated bases and therefore are not as simple as those in the last post.
Flood, 2015. From the side, this piece looks fairly simple, and very different than most. It was created during the time of our recent thousand year rain in Columbia.
Pushing the bases beyond any kind of norm is really fun. So is using hardware in an unusual way.
In this piece shapes were composed on a plane to have enough diversity to anchor the window. Then the bookends were placed for added strength. Wooden figures found at the flea market populate it, a bent wood section of a chair encloses an alligator reaching for a shape at the top, while two croquet mallets without their heads frame. The longest diagonal line is actually a hardened wooden vine from our woods.
Above and below are two sides of a piece currently on exhibition (but to come back in ten days) for which I have forgotten the name. It has a complicated base that contains the front two legs of a chair, plus the front seat base with holes for wicker. A portion of that base with holes is also the crown of the piece.
Confused, dear Louise?
