For December the T5 Gallery is pleased to introduce a new sculpture by Andy Baerselman. His ‘Prowling Jaguar’ is a masterful work in wood with a seamless form that flows from tail to face. The deep tones across the body work to highlight the muscular form of the beast.
The T5 Gallery would also like to take the opportunity to thank our clients for their continued support.
We wish you all a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Andy Baerselman’s newest creation is a supremely accomplished piece combining a technical mastery of materials with a fantastic artistic mind. The way in which the wood is fashioned allows for the natural grain to not just follow but to define the lines and form of the shark.
The base on which the shark is mounted allows for movement back and forth and side to side, via a simple but carefully thought out mechanism. This works to produce the effect of the shark only lightly skimming across the surface of the iron curve, further accentuating its beautiful form.
Showing for the second time with the gallery during August will be Andy Baerselman and his ‘Ray’ sculpture.
As with Andy’s previous work, this piece is highly crafted, presenting a sculptural form that perfectly represents the fluid form of an Eagle Ray.
The wood body is layered with a transparent resin which lends the work depth and an intense iridescence.
The sculpture is mounted in such a way that it can move freely on a pivot, hinting at the ease with which rays can glide through the water. They have been described as moving: “like a flag in the wind”
