Atelier

First look: Construction III

After almost a year of planning and production, I received the finalized stone blocks for Construction III in my atelier.

This third installment of the Construction series consists of 540 Travertine Silver blocks and a framed hand-drawn construction drawing. The blocks have been cut and sanded into 10 different basic shapes, based on children's wooden toy blocks. These are built into the construction from the drawing on black paper. The blocks are not affixed in any way, but placed on top of each other in a specific building order.

The Travertine has an enormous variety in color en texture, which gives this work incredible depth. This is also the first work in the Construction series that is completely self-supporting, without an internal load-bearing structure. 

A professional photoshoot has been planned but I'm already proud to show a couple of teaser close-ups I took myself.
