Biography Fraser Smith
I make trompe l'oeil wood sculptures of items made of fabric or leather. My subject matter is drawn from things that we tend to save, or cherish even after they are no longer useful; an old jacket that may not fit anymore, but we still keep it in the back of the closet, quilts, farmer's hats, and other items we might want to keep simply for the memories they hold. I want the works to look like things that have been used. You also may see some imperfections, or flaws in the wood; small knots, perhaps a discolored area. I don't plan these things, but I do enjoy them in a piece, as long as they remain fairly subtle. They are a quiet visual reminder that the work is carved from wood.
