Wood is Mystical
A once living,
breathing entity , wood seems to hold the essence of life itself. Trees have been eulogized for centuries by writers, poets, and artists both in folklore and religion. These collective
characterizations, have perhaps created an aura surrounding them that has turned them into the mystical juggernaut of the ages. Wood as well elicits this reverent admiration, as it passes from living tree
into the hand of the beholder. There are arguably no other materials that can give so much pleasure to the eye as well as the touch. Transmuting this material into a shape of my own conception, seems to render work
that remains imbued with that same life force. For me, wood remains the ultimate medium through which to express my imagery.
