Still Life Blocks
Oil on Gilded Pine Block
6.5cm x 4.5cm x 3cm
The making of each block takes time and care. The process harks back to the devotional works of mediaeval times that I have always loved: Sanding and buffing the hand cut pine, layering the gesso, the precious metal leaf and the oil glazes, as I explore each chosen object, is a slow and contemplative process.
Each object is chosen for its beauty and its meaning and each block works well in a carefully selected group or on its own on a shelf, mounted on a wall or wherever you please.
