Jessica Ward - Altared Branches


2015, Found branches, thread, various woods, enamel paint and polypro. 30x20cm

A collection of branches stand perched upon an altar.

The square framework of interlocking and overlapping branches is dramatically raised – charging the contained space of the bell jar.

It feels grand and ceremonious, yet remains intimate and delicate.

The piece is to viewed in-the-round, inviting the eye to travel and transverse through the layers of small boughs.

The altar raises the eye upwards and asks for a small moment of praise or contemplation.
