Jessica Ward - Branch Ladder

Jessica Ward - Branch Ladder


2015, Found branches, corno silk, 33x33cm, framed in black

Two delicate branches are held apart and under tension, as silk zigzags between them. A regular and pleasing rhythm is created for the eye as it moves back and forth between the two branches.

The thread not only holds the branches under tension but also suspends them and causes them to float with the frame.

This sense of suspension and illusion are extended by the pieces reactivity to light and the shadows that are cast within the confines of the frame.
