Size 34" wide x 21 1/2" high x 2 1/4" thick. The face stands 3 1/4" from the wall.

Artist Statement

Each sculpture is constructed of 3 layers of 3/4" birch plywood. I start by sketching the idea, then creating the design in a computer graphics program. The program creates a file that allows me to cut the piece on a wooden cnc router that I built just to produce these fish. After the pieces are rough cut, the layers are laminated together and shaped to their final contour.

The fish was stained with acrylic washes and detailed with acrylic paint. Two layers of a satin acrylic varnish have been applied over the surface.

Plywood often contains voids in the veneers which show up as small gaps in the thin layers. They can occur anywhere in the piece. I like what they bring to work.... an unpredictable quality that adds to its appeal. The hanger allows the piece to "float" away from the wall by about an inch. The "float" creates an interesting shadow effect and more visual volume.

Each piece is signed and dated on the back and comes complete with the wall hanger, screws, and related hardware. A screw driver is required to attach the hanger to the wall.

The piece is shipped fully crated to prevent damage during shipping.
