Wood.

Art.

Marquetry.

Inlay.

Here’s the work of Brooklyn based artist, Allison Elizabeth Taylor.

I love this piece, Swimming Pool, which is all those thangs. Talk about straight out of a comic book. Or Cougar Town. (Not the show, but the ever-more fascinating concept.)

It’s 70 X 40 inches, made completely of wood. And Ms. Taylor’s supreme abilities with wood is remarkable; the way the grain evokes age, contour, pattern, space & time.

For all you riders, check this piece too, entitled, Hank:
