Graham Roebeck – X Tension

Inspired by the most stressful week of my life- being inexorably pulled in all directions, a euphemism for the medieval Rack.

There are no flat faces on which to rest any object for relief- the whole piece is in tension- the black striations (2.0) infer structure being separated by the pressure under the smooth white skin.  There are no plumb faces, all are distorted. The tan timber insert (3.0) represents a hitherto untested source of strength that miraculously prevailed.
