About the art
This piece comes box framed with glass, framed in a white wooden frame.
I like creating geometrical patterns through various mediums. I like them to be precise in terms of their shape and construction. Using threads and nails has been one of the many creative ways I could use to make geometrical shapes and have fun with them. Each nail is hammered individually and then I weave the threads through the nails by hand until I get the desired shape and its placement onto the framed wall sculpture. As the hands move from one nail to another, the thread interweaves and creates complex geometrical patterns. Its a meditative, calculative process which create a beautiful intricate geometric patterns. Around 850 yards of thread is used in this artwork. The plywood in the background is painted with acrylic paint.
