Clint Work 'Asteroid' Panel

Kwakwaka'wakw artist Clint Work continues his meteoric progression with the completion of this recent red cedar panel titled '253 Mathtilde - Asteroid'. The abstract design is open to interpretation, and we have generated several explanations. One involves the panel's imagery reflecting objects and elements that the asteroid sees on Earth while passing by the Northwest Coast...the design is a snapshot of life seen at the second that the asteroid flies by.

Clint consolidated this concept of a 'Asteroid' design by creatively finishing the panel with carbon, one of the most common elements in the universe. The carbon provides this panel with a dark, near metallic sheen, resembling cast bronze. It is priced at $2,200.00 CAD and measures 24" in diameter.
