‘Above the Mundane’ (Hemlock wood, oil and Plexi-Glass, 79cm x 30.5cm x 30cm, Dirk Marwig 2013)
*This object is made from an old weathered hemlock log, the end of which I painted red. After a few years I cut 3 inches off the end of this very old log and then cut out 13 ‘year rings’ then reassembled it, pushing each ring out a little more than the last. Then I made the ‘Plexi-Glass’ base so the object receives it’s deserved ‘elevated’ status. The 2nd photo shows the 'top view'.
-How I made this object might be interesting but what I think is important is the reasoning behind it, the idea, the concept and what it projects.
