“Puzzling”, Color Image, 2013, Machine Shaped, Hand Sanded and Finished Scrap Wood

Inspired by my pops, who made a number of awesome scrap wood sculptures in his day; over the span of a few afternoons last summer, I reused some of the scrap wood hanging around our garage to create Puzzling.

My initial vision was of the mythical Atlas holding a world which had the mythical Atlas sitting on it, holding a world, which had the mythical Atlas sitting on it, holding a world…  This is what emerged as I worked with the wood available.  The self-recursive element remains, though Atlas in his Greek form didn’t really reveal himself.

Everything except the “wave” shaped piece in the lower left is wood harvested from the woods around where we live.  Much gratitude to our neighbor and his family up the road.
