"Walking Landscape"

Laminated sheets of plywood, particle board, and oak carved and sanded, finished with linseed oil.

Artist's Statement:

When I think of laminated wood, I think of topography. The lines created by carving the wood closely resemble the altitudinal lines on a map. To perpetuate this image, I carved my sculpture to resemble a mountainous landscape. The lines of the hills cut underneath the piece itself, making it seem like a living creature with a heavy belly and legs. I wanted to create and anthropomorphic sense of landscape, allowing the creature and its environment to blend into one entity.
