Brothers In Arms

Alex Diamond: Brothers In Arms (2017)
Multi-layered, sculptural woodcut. Wood, acrylic paint, resin. ca. 35 x 33 x 9 cm (13.8” x 13” x 3.5”)

„Brothers In Arms“ is a sculptural, multi-layered woodcut, painted and brushed/sponged with acrylic paint. One layer is additionally covered in transparent resin. It was produced in Hamburg in my studio between February 27and March 6, 2017.

„Brothers In Arms“ is another work in my most recent series, creating a dialogue between nature and urbanity in todays society. 

Like „Welcome To Bear Mountain“ and „The World Is Yours Baby“, this piece is a dioramic wall-sculpture, but a rather small version in comparison. It is probably the smallest I can go with my technique of blending woodcut with carpentery, cut outs and painting.  

The work is composed like a theatre stage - with plenty elements of drama. For a little bit more background you can read more here, it is pretty much based on a similar subject as „Welcome To Bear Mountain“, but with a focus on the strength of solidarity.  

This work will be shown at Galerie Wolfsen (Exhibition opening April 8, 2017). Please inquire with the gallery for more information.
