About the Work
This striking, powder coated steel bough by Shayne Dark resembles a network of dangling roots or veins. Poised between representation and abstraction, this intricate hand forged wall sculpture is saturated in egg shell black. Evocative of natural forms, the dense black colour of the work challenges our expectations. As such transformed and hovering between the organic and industrial, the bough explores the intersections of nature and artifice, of life and art, according to MOCCA director David Liss who wrote about Dark’s work in Sculpture Magazine (2015).
