Silver Box Trees No.269
Created by Chris Wheeler
This work is a combination of drawing, painting, and sculpting. The artist uses acrylics on paper that is individually cut and shaped for a modern and abstract style of collage work. The paper is stretched and then textured with medium body acrylics. Each piece is hand cut and glued with wheat paste on a wood panel. This technique of paper stretching is traditionally used to restore antique shoji screens and scrolls. Dimensions refer to each panel of this diptych. Each is framed in a simple floater frame.
