Iceberg

Mixed-Media Wall Art

Created by John Boak
this item has not yet been reviewed  
The painted wood sculpture includes a circle of stressed aluminum from a small plane crash along the continental divide. There is a larger glyph on the circle. A small twig hides behind the bent portion of aluminum circle. There are also three painted glyphs on the wood cartouche block. The painting techniques include airbrushed gradation and, int the lower portion of the central panel, subtle brushwork above the ragged edge.
The artist uses a variety of found objects in his sculptures: wind-polished aspen, milled-wood fragments, metal fragments, mining debris, high-altitude plane-crash fragments, stove parts, recycled crate wood, and more. Due to the unique nature of this piece, exact coloration and patterning will vary from piece to piece.

About this Artist

John Boak

"All objects have voices and secrets. Since childhood I have been collecting, making, painting and assembling objects, all the while coaxing from them their songs, symbols and secrets."

Living as we do in a world of highly-refined and powerful objects, we are trained to approach unknown objects as if their meaning will soon be revealed. Boak's sculptures encourage the anticipation of function and meaning. The glyphs are Boak's own; he has drawn and collected them for over thirty years. These sculptures begin in Boak's notebooks. He often creates drawings on hikes in the mountains, working in a small notebook with colored pencils. In his studio, he creates digital paintings of the sculptures, and accompanying dimension drawings to fabricate the various pieces. He uses airbrush and paintbrush to paint the pieces before assembly.
