William Bayliss, Wilcannia Cabinet (ART & OBJECTS 2023)

William Bayliss

I’m inspired by Australia’s arid woodlands. The Wilcannia Cabinet captures the organic, twisted shapes of the arid bush through movement, asymmetry and interconnection. Every aspect of the Wilcannia Cabinet offers surprising geometry. Just as many inland trees resist conventional uses, the Wilcannia Cabinet suggests function, but resists it at the same time. The drawers are memory vessels, not practical storage. The understructure is strong but flexible, allowing the cabinet to quiver in response to its environment. "Trees, planets, rivers, time know nothing else. They express it moment by moment as the universe." Les Murray
