ADAM NEATE continues to create his highly emotive original and multiple art works in ever more challenging materials, and this time has turned his attention to the historic art of marquetry.
Involving the application of pieces of veneer to a structure to form a decorative design or image, marquetry seemed the perfect material for him to realise his latest multiple concept.
Carefully selected veneers have been used to create his original artwork. Brushed metals emulate the candle holder, with light absorbing Holly wood imitating the flat, opaqueness of the wax. An ebonised poplar has been selected for the wick, which contrasts beautifully with the ‘colour flashing’ mother of pearl flame.
Offered as a small limited edition of 5 pieces, they are available with base colours of: FLAME CURL MAHOGANY, AMERICAN WALNUT, OAK and CHERRY.
Neate’s trademark signature is ebonised on the paler woods, and a fine steel on the dark Mahogany example.
