The artistic hub that is Perspicere has released its 'Thread Pieces on Chopped Wood.' The title is quite literal as tightly bound strings are hammered into thick tree slices, giving way to an elaborate dream catcher design.

The intricate bits of thread cross over one another indefinitely. A diverse selection of triangles, elongated rectangles and circles are fabricated, each one stretched tightly along the wooden back boards.

The layers upon layers of twine are also quite durable. Viewers are pressed to see the brown trunks through the clusters, although the bark that rests along the rounds gives away the arboreal base.

Perspicere's description of the pieces is spot on, "...a hybrid composite of abstraction and representationalism, rich in geometric shapes and simulated forms." This angular approach is instantly identifiable.
