Bending Branch Tapestry

£3,500.00

This is a sculptural wall piece, made from natural fallen wood and mirrors and the wood has been warm air treated.

Initially inspired by the structure of the willow branch from which the tapestry hangs, Lee arranged the mirrors from slight to broad and the branch from thick to thin. Although guided by her first design, the materials quickly take over and dictate the final form.

Description

Lee Borthwick combines her love of wild landscapes with sensitively gathered materials. Her intuitive approach to fabrication facilitates a tactile, reflective, and poetic experience for the viewer. Assembling organic forms, tree pieces, and timber off-cuts into ordered relationships, often fused with mirror, is a recurring concept within Lee’s practice. Calling to mind the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy and Richard Long, Lee brings the outside in. She places importance on purity by habitually echoing the existing beauty in natural forms, an approach that emerged from time spent living in Finland: the land of lakes, forests and vast, solitary spaces combined with the peace and contemplation she found there is the strand that connects each piece of her work.
