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.
