8x31" | re-purposed burnished wooden skateboard | 2016
Original work; commissioned exclusively for Vince.
Re-purposed from a burnished wooden skateboard, this on-of-a-kind sculpture is an exclusive Studio Series: Vince x Tappan work by multimedia artist Luke Chiswell.
Chiswell draws on the stark contrast between his environments and his experiences, exploring the intimacy of sculpture. Growing up in the Bush of Australia, Chiswell's passion for skateboarding developed while he was young. The combination of nonchalance and natural influences are evident in his Trophies series, as his recycled skateboards collected over time are carved and burnished, marked with short phrases that pass between emotional extremes. It is this ability to create a home within fluidity that makes his work wholly primal and honest while also unnervingly complex and enigmatic.
The work comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed by the Co-Founder of Tappan
The work ships in 7-10 business days.
