Bronze on historic map in painted wood frame - 20x20x5cm
The bronze piece was created by casting plywood maps on which maps were drawn in wax. 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.
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.
