Where is Heaven?

2007-2013 | Layered Copper Mesh | 50 x 70 cm

 


This layered piece is created by cutting out  sheets of copper mesh with sharp blades and layering them on top of one another.  Its a beautiful and slow process.  Quite old school on some levels although the planning as always relies on some heavy lifting on computer front :-)  The thing that utterly amazes me about copper mesh as a medium is its extreme sensitivity to the angle of the incident light.  In particular, if it hasn't got back light glowing through it, all you see is a sheet of solid copper! You can hopefully get a sense of this delicacy from these amazing shots by Niinak Keks and Otto Pierrotti.


Dedicated to Ester Gluck April 1982 to Sept 2006.
