DescriptionThe three bowls - cross sections of the bases of huge trees - stylistically derive from furniture objects Brzezinski used to make. The domestic association of wooden bowls collides ironically with the obvious non-utility of the bowls' heroic scale and chunked out interiors. Brzezinski's work boldly defines the gallery space both architectonically and organically.
