For this work, Oppenheim bypasses the camera, applying wood veneers straight onto photographic paper to directly transfer their natural patterns, transporting material into image with no intermediary. The artist uses both Cherry and Birdseye veneers to create this work, the origins of which are beautifully conveyed through the frames that are made from the same wood species.
