the devil’s rope

leave a comment »

The Devil’s Rope/Type, a series of wires pulled across two wooden posts by Andrew Effendy. Each barbed section of the wires form letters of the alphabet, A through Z, and when linked up to form words alludes to the aggressive nature that words can often convey.

matches: passion

leave a comment »

Love is all passion and fire and the ability to ignite at a moment’s notice. Love is a word formed by red matches! by Pei-San Ng

This piece is made up of approximately 2,500 match sticks and a total of 24 hours. The board is a reclaimed art board / plywood. It was previously used as a glueing surface. The type is hand drawn.

Love on fire represents romance and passion or destructions and jealousy.  It is raw and gritty.
