Pine resin and wood
104 x 45 x 25 cm
Samyn here has sourced an antique wood sculpture, originally from a church, and covered it in natural resin. Resin is “the blood of the tree”, as Samyn points out, so both the wood and its cover are reminders of the original material behind this representation: a living tree. The fragile cover of poured resin is also reminiscent of a glowing fire, moving this work into the vicinity of the Twilight’s Gaze paintings.
