Painted paper contours with bronze inset pieces in a wood frame - 40x24x5cm
The bronze piece was created by casting a plywood square on which a map design was laser cut. The plywood is only partially burnt out before pouring in the molten bronze, leaving areas of charcoal which appear as holes in the final pieces. The resulting effect explores fragility, both in terms of our memory of places as well as the fragility of the environment I am experiencing.
The paper contours were hand cut from thick paper, glued in place and then painted with acrylic paints.
There is a fitting on the back to hang this piece on a nail or screw. Bronze care instructions are also affixed to the back.
