|©2015 Barry Smith - Section of A Drift of Leaves|
The installation is meant to suggest a bunch of leaves that have been swirled and blown into a longish line by the wind. Of course my drift is very shiny; but the leaves are all unique and can vary in colour, patina, the amount of brass or slier showing etc.
The drift is shown below - on a rusty surface outside with bright afternoon sunlight; and on suede leather inside with light coming through the studio door.

Below are the excess leaves - about 27 in all - most have patterned surfaces - quite a lot of these will go to the Botanique Bazaar.
