This wood and resin triptych is a substantial piece of wall art. It has been created from a stunning piece of Scottish burr elm which has been split and ‘book-matched’ to create a design that has balance and symmetry.
The artwork is called “Harmony – Yin Yang Reimagined”. The combination of burr wood and resin is used as a metaphor to illustrate how harmony can be achieved from the tensions and challenges we face in our everyday lives. The pleasing patterning found in burr elm is created from natural stresses, strains and often damage to a tree, yet what emerges is harmonious beauty that is highly prized. The black and white resin, which melds and wraps around the burr elm, represents the ‘yin and yang’ of life and the dualities we live with day to day. We often see black and white as opposing forces, however these colours should not be seen as a source of tension and strain, but as differences that complement each other to create harmony, balance and beauty.
The frames are also made from Scottish elm and each panel has been flood coated to create a high gloss finish.
Dimensions: each of the three panels is 70cm (L) x 40cm (H)
