Artist Statement

Sculpture of the X4 - Series

X4 is an ongoing series of simple graphic forms that create timeless and enduring designs. The handcraft wooden pieces sits somewhere between furniture, object and sculpture. The contrast of the minimalistic shapes and traditional craft, goes beyond the object’s functionality. With different influences like the graphic Bauhaus Art and the playful Memphis Design group, both iconic designers that combined functionality with a focus on simplicity and bold, modern shapes. The pieces are purposefully ambiguous, sitting just as happily in a domestic space as in an art gallery. The designs start as a 2D composition that we translate to a 3D object. The dominant black contours still gives a flat silhouette and different perspectives. Black can swallow light, or make thinks look sharp. Each design is handmade by Jordi Verbaan, where he starts with selecting carefully individual boards, matched for colour, grain pattern and structural integrity. The use of traditional joinery methods maximizes strength, allows for seasonal wood movement and are intended to stand the test of time. All pieces are finished by hand with the traditional ebonizing wood process and hard wax oil.
