"Lockdown but not out.' 2020. This idea has been in development for a few months. It's 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.
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. Each piece put together by hand and each piece is unique 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!
