This piece has a dark, saddening tone to it, not only brought on by the darker wood stains used, but in the expression on the fish's face as it's snagged by the hook. The skeletal structure is a definitively morbid reminder or the mortality of all living creatures. Perhaps the saddest part - and my favorite element - is the cute illustration style in the fish's face. One likes to think of cute little creatures as being eternal in a way, but no one likes to think of cute little creatures dying or otherwise being harmed. So there's definitely a certain heart string being tugged at in this piece.
Method-wise, the usage of a laser cutter throughout the gallery (like this piece) brings a fresh, modern take on wood working. I've always thought traditionally carved wood reliefs and mignets were interestings, but the layers approach to this makes it so much more interactive to the viewer. As a viewer, the layers make me want to look at it closer, to follow certain lines and see if my eyes call out new details as I dig deeper into the piece. The possibilities for hidden features in this method are endless, and the reductive color scheme just makes that interactivity more enjoyable.
These things are incredible.
