White Book #3, 2010

PEDESTAL SCULPTURE wood  
10.5 x 10 x 7.25 in
28 x 25 x 18 cm
In Christian Burchard's "Books" series, the artist uses a band saw to cut green blocks of Pacific Madrone wood with a high water content, and a microwave is then used to dry the wood evenly and from the inside out. As the water evaporates and leaves the cells and the spaces between the cells, the wood shrinks and twists and some very dynamic changes can occur. Each book’s form is a direct result of its underlying grain structure, and each has its own distinct personality. The books are always bleached to expose what is within, which the artist compares to black and white photography in its simplicity, focus on structure, and undulations and textures.
