This is an ongoing project I have been working on for the the last couple of years. It came about when I returned to Liverpool in the Uk after living in Canada for many years. The thing that I really missed was living in and with wood.
Liverpool has always bought up thoughts about how the docks were a gateway of supplies from all over the world. Some of these supplies at one time had more value to them than gold.
I felt that wood held this status to me, so I started going on walks to rediscover the area and collect wood. I have since then been (Dutch) gold leafing found wood.
This is a studio set up of this piece. I have spent so much time wondering what form, shape this was going to take. I have decided that I am going back to my very first idea, so when I get back to the UK I will set this up again.
