Richard Caink 1994
“My work explores our relationship with the natural world. The result, whether abstract or representational, celebrates the creative possibilities of the wood, which as a material is so fundamental to civilisation. By extension or metaphor, wood is life, and the work thereby celebrates life in all its diversity.”
At one time surrounded by trees so that the work felt like a closeted ‘living room’ that you arrived at through a corridor in the forest, currently standing in a bare patch of felled ground which gives the work a surreal feel.
