This piece is the first of a series of monumental Rifts. It was carved out of half a log of Poplar, with a chainsaw to give it it’s shape and rough out the volume, then with an Arbortech to create the waves (carving tool mounted on an angle grinder). It was carved with carving gouges y hand to create the ripples of the ray of light underwater, and to clean what the powertool created, give it more depth and more relief. It was then burnt, brushed, dyed with Indian ink and painted with the dry brush technique, using acrylic paints.
