 I find it difficult to go to an art gallery and not touch anything. 'reason why' is the exact opposite of that experience. Both smooth and rough, and full of texture, this piece is a reminder of the importance of our sense of touch.

Materials: 'reason why' has an especially rough substrate that contrasts with the delicate blue rice paper flowers and vintage handwriting. Other layers include a vintage road map and tiny birds, along with watercolour pencils.

In keeping with the salvaged wood substrate, the sides are unfinished, with bits of paper and paint drips visible. This piece can be hung, but it is solid wood, so it's probably better displayed on a bookshelf, mantle, or table. If you wish to hang it, adhesive strips (e.g., 3M) will likely work best. Signed on the back, this piece is finished with a matte varnish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
