Wood Wall Sculpture
Created by Anne Bossert
Riitta is made up of parts and pieces upcycled from previous projects. For instance, the red wedge shapes are offcuts from some feet Bossert made for a sofa. This wall relief is comprised of dyed maple and birch plywoods, aluminum, and hand-dyed handwoven fabric. The composition is based on rugs, with a center focal point contained by multiple frames. The wall pieces Bossert makes are titled like hurricanes: women's names in alphabetical order. Riitta is the 18th wall piece in this series. Riitta is named after the former owner of the artist's house, who was Finnish. This piece uses a French cleat system for hanging. You will need a level when mounting the cleat and possibly wall anchors if you are hanging it on drywall.
