The brick series is all about interpretation and imagination. Inspired by LA artist, James Gulliver Hancocks drawing entitled All the chairs I sat on, I made my interpretation of his interpretation. And thats how the Brick Chair came aboutmuch like a game of Chinese whispers.
The Brick series triggers an instinctive reaction. As a child you want to build your entire world with wooden blocks or Lego. A block or brick construction makes it possible to create nearly anything you can think of. The Brick Chandelier is a good example of this, with its span of 2.7 meters. The building block becomes a new material to work with. Just imagine
The Brick Chair is an interpretation of a drawing that is itself an interpretation of an existing chair. Twice transformed it ended up in blocks. We all see different things in the same images.
After the Brick Chair I started building the Brick Chandelier to explore the possibilities. It reaches over two meters and is made from over 1000 blocks.
