Umbra XII, 2021




Wall sculpture, charred pine, walnut, oak, ash, maple and poplar, mdf. Umbra focuses on the deepest details found in dark shadows. The wall sculptures are abstracted segments of various architectural structures based on existing locations and places from Lappi’s memory. In her recent works, Lappi has been using charred wood. Dark, silky, and pitted surfaces unify simple geometric shapes. Irregular pentagons, triangles, trapezoids and circles intersect in ways that give structural integrity to the sculptures while creating a hypnotic visual rhythm. The charred material itself has an agency. The passage of time, loss and remembrance are encompassed within this blackened material that has been transformed through the act of burning.
