Just under a month to go to catch New Truth to Materials: Wood - ends 1 January 2018.
.
This work by Roger Ackling was produced with no more than a magnifying glass and the sun. Ackling spent nearly 40 years of his life dedicated to transforming simple objects and pieces of found wood into beautiful, simple works of art. Ackling often produced his works in the location where he found the wood and could spend up to 7 hours a day lost in 'joyful, obsessive concentration' making these sculptures.
