This series of work is influenced by the natural patina seen in the decay of urban architecture that I have photographed in many parts of the world. In the pieces, I carve a number into the surface as I feel it, based on how much we are all controlled by erroneous numbers in society. All of this is created by painting on wood panel and then covering it in layers of plaster then carving back through the layers to expose the pieces of color. As in life, we all look back through the years or layers that have passed in our lives and there is always a number attached to those moments in time.   Colas
