Wall Panel Carvings

Poplar, Resin

Description

In January 2020 I made a series of wall panel carvings based on a tattoo design that I have on my right arm (the brown carving). I really enjoyed the art style and wanted to expand on the theme and practice my graphic design abilities. The brown carving was designed by my tattoo artist, and the other three are mine.

The series represents the four ancient elements: Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. The thematic motif forms the center of each carving, with abstract geometry surrounding. The directionality of all pieces is symmetric and pointed downwards to show movement and make them appear to be part of a set.

The inlay is epoxy resin and the finish on all of the pieces is tung oil.
