Thin strips of vine intersect. Together they create a voluptuous, open body of ripples. Emerging from early morning shadows, this graceful form stands firm and strong.
When I first noticed this object, the light from the kitchen widows hit its surface in such a way that it almost looked like a surreal woven landscape. Upon later inspection, the form of the object reminded me of the subtle curves of the human body. In the upcoming series Treasure, I deliberately seek out objects that most people would discard. They are aged, worn and sometimes in need of repair, but if you look at them from a different point of view, you will see their hidden beauty.
