I’ve always been interested in how light affects our special perception around environments and objects. I’ve produced many pieces of art and furniture with this in mind.
In the Platters, I directly compare light and darkness through the use of subtle carving techniques. Are the shaded areas more intriguing due to the changing grain and dimmed surface or is the brightly illuminated surface more impressive as it seems to stand out more prominently? Are we drawn more to the light or the dark? Are they not just as valuable in creating a pleasing unified art piece?
