Marc Fish, Adhesion Console, UK, 2016
Fish constantly strives to transcend the barriers of art, design, sculpture, and furniture. His sublimely unique works possess a timelessness that could be found seamlessly in the most contemporary of settings to the most traditional. Exploring the Victorian obsession with natural history, these one-of-a-kind pieces are created through Fish’s incredible mastery of the most refined practices in micro stack-lamination today. While the curvilinear forms of Fish’s works harken back to Art Nouveau, his process pushes the limits of 21st century furniture design.
Fish’s unique Adhesion Console explores the aesthetic nature of human and plant biology. The work’s title reflects this thematic exploration— “adhesion” referring to an abnormal union of membranous surfaces due to inflammation or injury. Fish has taken inspiration from organic fibers and how they repair when torn. The table in walnut and clear resin appears to be torn almost to breaking point with only the smallest pieces remaining and the spaces left to be biologically repaired. Marc Fish’s sculptural Adhesion Console, is created through the process of micro stack-lamination. Manipulated into sinuous layered shapes, the wood is hand-carved, sanded, polished, and finished with oil and wax.
