Mansion at Strathmore
Timber gathers regional and national artists working in wood: turning, sculpting, and carving woodworks from mahogany, ash, and holly. From recycled objects, found twigs, and sourced species of wood, this material is transformed into a towering bear, a vulnerable forest, a footed table, and a lifelike hand delicately perched upon a quartered log. Striped vessels with surprising holes, warped baseball bats, and curved folds of wood render the unexpected in this familiar medium. Strathmore invites viewers to engage with the creative ways in which artists utilize this natural resource to embody their vision.
