Shadow Box - Forest of gods

A Shadow Box is like a personal shrine, a multilayered collage of treasured and meaningful images set on lasercut acrylic in an artistic assemblage. These boxes are like little story worlds in themselves, intriguing and playful rabbit holes inside everyday reality.

According to the legend of the sea, it was considered bad luck for a sailor's shadow to touch land before his body does. Other sailors would create a shadowbox for the departing sailor,  which would contain the sailor's "shadow" until he was safely ashore.  

Drawn & printed on 300 gsm high quality art paper, the assemblage is housed inside reclaimed and seasoned teakwood boxes coated with natural brown polish in ultra matt finish.

The Forest of Gods is the illusory mirror where many reflecting selves reside exploring the divide between the observer and observed. As the enquirers encounter dual qualities springing up from the screen of time, the forest becomes a potent space for removal of all conflict.
