HAND Carved SLATE Slab "ROOTS" Mounted & Framed
Signed "Stuyesant" Dated 1984 01
Hand carved slate slab signed "Stuyesant"
dated 1984, mounted and framed.
We are pleased to offer this unique
piece of artwork. This is a hand carved slab of slate.
This hand carved slab of gray slate
is titled "ROOTS" it is a Bas-relief carving of tree
roots, carved into a 9 1/2 inch wide, by 19 1/2 inch tall, 3/8
inch thick slab of slate. The work is signed "Stuyesant",
unfortunately we are unable to find any information about the
artist. This carving is mounted to a rough weave, off white
fabric, with four metal tabs. The back board is set in an extruded
aluminum gun metal gray frame ( very 1970s in style) The frame
measures 15 1/4 inches wide, by 25 1/4 inches tall, and 1 inch
deep. The slab and frame weigh 10.75 pounds
Condition- The condition of this piece
is good, The fabric backing is a bit dusty, and the frame could
use a light cleaning as well. The slate carving looks good,
but it has a small chip, located just below center, in the negative
space between two root branches. This could be polished out
to match the texture of the surrounding stone.
This is a very strong almost graphic
looking piece of artwork. It has a Mid Century Modern feel to
it, and would look right at home in a room done in this style.
