Wayne Saunders - "Torso"
W: 100mm x H: 200mm x D: 100mm
Approx. Weight: 1kg
This work is unframed
A small piece of wood that took incredible perseverance and attention to detail to form. The human torso was clearly evident from pick-up but the brittle nature of this old driftwood called for very delicate handling and polishing.The hollow nature of the torso reminds me much about the very temporary nature of our existence and the hollow shell that our body is once the soul/spirit departs.
Nature and natural processes collaborate in the creation of my sculptures; wind, water,insects,and natural weathering all contribute to determining the subject. Stored sunlight in the form of the lignin in wood which is my favourite medium allows the energy of long gone sunrises and sunsets to shine through in the grain of the wood and the latent energy of this stored sunlight imbues creation with beauty.
A percentage of profits will be donated to The Wilderness Leadership School. The selected pieces of wood that become sculptures have been exhibited in natures gallery in some cases for decades, on windswept shores, the hot baking savannahs of Africa and flooding rivermouths where they disgorge into the southern oceans. I happen upon them and recognise the hidden and sometimes not so hidden forms within them. Each piece also contains a story of hidden journeys.
