Opening Up

£6,000.00

This is one of the wood sculptures from the new show by Jim Jack. This exhibition contains intricate examples of the different forms he has been fond of working with. Jim combines the attention to detail and skills of a craftsman with the enquiring mind and vision of an artist. Each work in the show represents many hours of work by the artist. He often works on several pieces at once, each being at a different stage of development.

Multiple layers of wood laminate or corrugated card are sawn and shaped or twisted, glued and fixed, turned and manipulated, carved, ground and sanded down. Surfaces and textures add further dimensions, while the natural beauty and depth of colour of the material is brought to life by burnishing and oil.
