'BRACKETS' 2008
Wood, epoxy resin and assorted paints

Also made for the exhibition 'Tree Hugger' at Platform gallery Vaasa, Finland. As all the other works directly referred to someone elses work or another object or place I wanted to make something entirely fictional to sit amongst them. Looking like a selection of similar found objects the Brackets were instead constructed from scratch from strips of wood and glued and painted to look like ad-hoc homemade welded metal that had chipped and rusted in the elements. I used the epoxy to mimic the rough welds and taught myself a model-makers trick using matt grey and then brown to replicate the weathering.
