THE WAY OF THE WOOD
Bradley Messer makes art on wood, but 'knot' just any wood. Searchiing the back alleys and lanes of Vancouver, BC to reclaim the knottiest pine he can find. Bradley believes using found wood gives the work extra character and back story while at the same time promoting sustainability and recycling.
The knots in the wood are his way down the rabbit hole, his foundation on which he builds. "Knots are like peep holes and once you look through them, you can never see it the same way again." Like a soothsayer, he draws upon the wood, channeling the spirits and reviving the enchanted choir with new song.
