6/12/17 Update. Step 2 in the series involved an installation last weekend for a party. It included board designs (L-r) 1, 6, 3, & 5. Dimensions are 1'x3'x1" This pic shows the pieces assembled and ready to hang. I will sell these after cleaning them up a bit so pm me if you're interested.





I've drawn a lot of inspiration from the oceanic arts and most recently the gope boards of PNG. My current project involves a series of 12 pieces that display an evolution from the indigenous style to the one currently awaiting materialization. These are the 1st 3 which I wanted to share. I haven't sorted out how I will be selling them publicly but one of my friends has already spoken for one. I will continue to post the rest as I finish them.

Great work. I dig the design and colors selected. What kind of wood do you use?

Sorry for the late reply - It's layers of 1/2 inch birch plywood.

Those are damn impressive. The color combinations work very well together.
