'Undercurrents' - Contemporary Marquetry by Rick Allender
Size: 600 x 600mm (Framed)
Mixed Media: Camphor Laurel, Karri wood veneer, paint. anodised aluminium frame.
With this piece - Rick pays respect to the beauty of the wood, allowing the natural 'ebb and flow' within the grain to shine, enhancing with unique detail, blue background and a stunning aluminium frame.
Undercurrents has emerged from the idea that material is the fundamental generator for art, and its properties are altered with the observers’ viewpoint. The work makes reference to the tidal flux and organic layered forms of diurnal change. The only surface addition to the marquetry are small graphic wood veneer elements that have been inlaid in one corner.
