Joe Graci

Marquette, MI

I create carved wood panels and objects made from sawmill waste with both hand and power tools. The wood is often worked green then allowed to warp and crack as it dries. I paint or burn the surface then sand back to emphasize tool marks. The lines and textures carved in the wood are abstractions from the natural environment. I primarily work within squares, rectangles and grids; exploring relationships between the organic carving and the machined lines.
