Double Take (Carob)
2" x 2"
A casual glance, a turn away, a delayed reaction, a second glance, surprise, something unexpected, has reality just become clearer! This miniature work is a reminder to look beyond what is noticed at first glance, look inside, look again. Literally hundreds of small pieces of wood, actually 702 individual pieces of wood, were cut, sanded and fitted together to create this small-scale work. I find great satisfaction in placing large challenges in front if myself, even if they are small in scale.
