La Gloriosa or ‘Glorious, Decaying Empire’ (Douglas Fir,wood glue, 227.5cm x 28cm x 18cm, Dirk Marwig 2013)
*This was a big slice of Douglas Fir which first I turned into a perfect rectangular “block”. The newly created “block” had the “Golden Rectangle” shape or the ‘divine proportions/dimensions’. Then I wildly started to cut the block apart , saving all the pieces and splinters and then began to glue them back together again keeping the “golden section” in mind.
It began to look like the “Empire State Building”, The “Statue of Liberty” and “Decaying Detroit” all in one and that’s how I kept it. Befitting the State of Affairs, Right Now.
