ru ware variations
This was the first in a series of modular, multi-part works combining mirrors and hand painted painted panels. The units were all housed in hand finished white stained and lime waxed ash tray frames.
The colours for this unique set were inspired by a painting by Brice Marden called
The Ru Ware Project
(2007 - 2012), which he based on the colours of ancient Chinese ceramics. For this work we chose to use the lovely chalky colours from the range by Edward Bulmer.
Whereas Marden's painting is in nine parts and is displayed in a horizontal line, this set is in five parts. The painted panels and mirror may be displayed in varying numbers and combinations and can be easily changed when desired.
The frames are tray types: the 4mm mirror with polished edges and the hand painted panels fit snugly within the front of the frames. The face on these frames is just 6mm wide giving this design a contemporary minimalist look.
The solid ash frames are hand finished with a white stain and lime wax. The frames have split battens on the reverse for secure fixing to the wall. Each unit is stamped and signed on the reverse.
This work has now sold. However can accept commissions based on this design. The size, colours, frames, wood and finish, plus number of units can all be made to order.
Size of units shown: 390 x 390 x 33 mm
Weight per unit: mirror 1.5 kg; panels 1 kg.
