Kino Guérin – Why Knot

Why Knot by Kino Gurin

Artist Name:  Kino Guérin
Title:  Why Knot
Details:  circa 2011 – Smoked Oak Plywood, 58″ x 28″ x 28″

Why It’s Notable:

When I think of plywood, I think of flat sheets that are good for building cabinets.  I might consider bending and laminating plywood to create a moderate curve for the top of a chest or a round furniture part, but form the plywood into a knot?  How this piece was made is not apparent.

The sharp contrast between the smoked oak faces and light-coloured edge is also nice.
