Burnt Plate

Robin Berrewaerts


The plate is made of oak wood from a storm fallen tree harvested by the artist in a forest in Keerbergen, Belgium.

This plate presents the story of a piece of wood that has undergone the transformation of being burnt. The experience of a black surface is physical. The absorption of light draw the eye, the pupil opens and there is a sense of being pulled into the surface. Experiencing form and details before recognizing the material itself.
