Henrik Schrat

Eden in Iraq

51 x 38 cm
Hand signed by the artist

The intricate wood inlay work is produced from several types of wood, and polished afterwards. Mirrors have been inserted. The use of the traditional technique of wood inlay (marquetry) gives the art pieces a strong presence. The difference between the old and slow wood technique and the contemporary and comic – like imagery produce an extremly intresting style. Its a quirky object, more an object as an image somehow. Adding to this are the mirrors, getting a type of kitsch – pop aspect into play. So we come to an ironic, self reflexive art piece, haptic attractive, old fasioned and futuristic at the same time. The piece belongs to a series of work, called „Peters Journey to the moon“ consisting of 12 works and (12 related so called 'Essences', produced as an edition of 15 pieces each). This one here is one of the 12 singular flagships of the series, setting the theme. „Peters Jourey“ revolves around imaginary and real countries and territories, resembled by the shapes of the pieces. They are filled with iconic imagery of an imagined place, hence getting in conversation with each other.
