noun, (Concise Encyclopedia)
Sculptural form in which figures are carved in a flat surface and project only slightly from the background rather than standing freely. Depending on the degree of projection, reliefs may also be classified as high or medium relief.
In Mandarin Wall Hanging I have taken this idea to create a sculpture which can be hung on a wall. The Mandarin sculpture which preceeded this piece is cast in bronze. By casting the relief in resin I was able to create a bas relief which is suitable for hanging on an interior wall.
Mandarin Wall Hanging is currently on exhibit at The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in their Birds in Art exhibition and at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Western Visions.
