His work reminds me a bit of Andy Goldsworthy's intriguing natural creations, and since I had been ignoring my bookaholic urges in the past couple of months, I decided to give in to this one. And I made a good decision. I spent a long delightful lunch break with Stickwork, dipping into the introduction and paging through his wonderful whimsical and inspiring creations--and managing not to get spaghetti sauce on my brand new artbook.
Perhaps I like his works so much because he connects them so often with trees, one of my favorite subjects, or perhaps the woven, swirling nature of these structures reminds me of the interlacing of Celtic knotwork that I love so much. Whatever it is, I am looking forward to getting to know his work better.
More on the second book at another time--and if you are still reading, thanks for the company.
