Barnwood Oak (finished and non-finished/weathered); Barnwood Ash (finished); Oil Finish; 9"x12" Oil on Canvas Panel Painting.
What started as oak and ash trees in the Ohio River Valley at the time the Renaissance was just getting started in Europe, then felled, milled and used as barn siding and stalls by farmers in the late 1800s, has been transformed, hopefully honored, and given a final use in this Denouement Cabinet. The weathered oak siding gets a new home doing an old job - as siding to an heirloom quality cabinet rather than a barn. The finished carcass of the cabinet previously served as stalls in the interior of the barn. This cabinet is a reinvention, avoiding pastiche by using old materials in a way that honors the past but compliments and celebrates modernity
The oil painting on a canvas panel is 9" x 12" and atmospherically depicts a tree line. The painting can be removed allowing display of items on the middle interior shelf. Alternatively, the painting could be replaced by another 9"x12" painted panel (note, the door frame can only accept 1/4" or less canvas thickness, so 9"x12" studio, gallery or museum canvases will not fit).
