An Neolithic Circuitboard is a dimensional piece that incorporates two individual leaded Stainglass panels into a single work using both color, texture and negative space. The title refers to the journey humanity has taken from struggling to create order out the apparent chaos of nature to the increasingly regimented and structured society of today.
The piece was initially inspired by Max Ernst’s A Moment of Calm. Fascinated by Ernst’s use of a pallet knife to create depth and form with his paint, The artist sought to achieve the same effect with layered glass panels, one appearing to float above the other. The piece is completed by a wooden frame that was custom milled and crafted by the artist. The material used, fir, was chosen for its warm reddish color and discrete grain pattern.
