BIG HEART #1, 2005-2006

This is the first of three anatomical hearts sculpted from 3 burls (abnormal tree growth) culled over the years from the woods, carpeting the narrow Digby Peninsula (’Digby Neck’), separating Saint Mary’s Bay from the Bay Fundy in south west Nova Scotia. As narratives, the intrinsic shapes of the burls determine the particular caricature of anatomical heart. The varied grain, color, and “sap runs” of this wood species dictates that the product be painted…… (currently in prinme stage).
