"Lockdown but not out.' 2020. Option 2, This idea has been in development for a few months. Its a symbol of hope and love for our planet, with an overiding sense that time is a great healer. Its meant as a memento for your household, something to cherish in years to come as a memory of 2020 and the challenges we have all embraced. Each piece can be personalised on the rear with a few words of your choosing to make it extra special, maybe the name of your family, house or flat, something that has great significance to your experiences of the last few months. Limited to four words, each one will be hand stencilled to order by the artist!
The asymmetric wires over the top of the globe capture that feeling of entrapment that has become the new normal.
In summary its a hand carved and spray painted heart shaped earth on English ash wood. Each art heart is glossed with varnish. Its mounted onto a quality pine frame that was manufactured in Bournemouth UK, to order. The artwork is ready to hang or can be placed on a shelf and is freestanding. The symbol of time is indicated by the hand carved tally on four sides of the wooden frame. The brass key hole has been purchased from a Malmesbury hardware store, and each key is a unique vintage lock key. Each artwork is signed on the front. Its not numbered as each piece is unique but very limited stocks are available due to a shortage of pine outer frames. The size of the artwork is 28cm by 28cm.
The idea itself is a collaboration with a good friend of the Stencil Shed 'Simon Ball', a great craftsman and occasional assistant to the Stencil Shed!
