Wake (work in progress)

Wake’ is a work in progress that emerged from a fascination with the carved wooden matrix of the woodblock. The work seeks to emulate an existing wooden floor that is carved to evoke the gentle wake of an ocean wave at the point at which it begins to retreat back down the sandy shore - a moment that has for me always resonated with a living being, breathing.

A maquette of the work was first exhibited at Commune 1 Gallery’s group show ‘Salvo’ in Cape Town 2012.
