When curator / artist Alberto Lenz approached me about being in an exhibition of artist chairs, I was at once delighted. Eight artists, eight chairs, all chairs being identical at the start, handcrafted by a carpenter hired by Lenz. Even more exciting was the prospect that this would be the first of a few exhibitions with the same type of chairs, by many different artists, in the year to come. I hopped on the bandwagon with a full-on YES.
|All chairs began like this, made of pine with a|
traditional rustic shape.
