This is a sculptural wall piece, made from blackened wood and mirrors. It hangs on two screws and reflects the colours around it in tiny fragments. This piece looks particularly wonderful if it can reflect a greenery through a window or other colours picked up from the room around it.

Lee Borthwick combines her love of wild landscapes with sensitively gathered materials. Her intuitive approach to fabrication facilitates a tactile, reflective, and poetic experience for the viewer. Assembling organic forms, tree pieces, and timber off-cuts into ordered relationships, often fused with mirror, is a recurring concept within Lee’s practice. Calling to mind the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy and Richard Long, Lee brings the outside in. She places importance on purity by habitually echoing the existing beauty in natural forms, an approach that emerged from time spent living in Finland: the land of lakes, forests and vast, solitary spaces combined with the peace and contemplation she found there is the strand that connects each piece of her work.
