Skin & Bones

June 08 - 22, 2014


Joint exhibition with Ruth Switalski. Three separate works and one collaborative piece.

'PINE' is based on the titular word encoded in Code 128.

We came home today. Here stands the table. The grain of the pine. Like fire, like lake water. The annular rings on the surface: the dark winters and bright summers. All Sweden. All my former self. This is what I wanted: clean wood. A surface continuing inwards. A material alive in death. A hope that truth can be combined with joy. I must seek some link with this former self.
