Wandering II

£4,500.00

This is a sculptural wall piece, made from natural fallen wood (sustainably sourced willow and blackthorn branches).  The wood has been warm air treated and the sculpture undulates across the wall to a maximum depth of 25 cm.

For this collection, Lee is allowing selected branches to dictate the form of the finished work; no longer flat and framed but undulating and wandering like a walk through the landscape or a breaking wave. The mirror arrangements are more random; clustered, scattered and less uniform. “Wanderings” a series of unique wall-hanging works, takes the aesthetic of Lee’s signature wood and mirror tapestries into more sculptural compositions, whilst retaining the tranquil, therapeutic qualities for which her work is renowned.

Description

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.
