Escher #2

  • Addie Draper, Escher #2, 1990, kingwood, ebony, holly, and birch veneers with dye, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Jane and Arthur K. Mason, 1991.169.2

In Escher #2, Addie Draper uses sections of wood with a strong, curved grain to build up the walls of the container. The separate parts blend together as a whole piece, and the surface appears woven, as if layers of fabric have been looped over and around each other.
