Solo show: Jimmy Robert

 

 

 

A world of woods, processed for remarkable effects. Crown cut birch shows straight grain against symmetrically book-matched cathedrals. Bold varied designs dance around rasterized annual rings of rotary sliced beech. The variegated pattern of flat sawn ash tree. All together 17 square yards of the finest silks. Taken as the extent of our contact with others.
