Nordbruch uses technique as a vehicle for transporting abstract ideas into visual reality. He makes pieces that are “firmly rooted in ideas rather than function… where the craftsmanship is still a strong element, but no longer the backbone.”
Untitled engineers a tantalising play between exterior and interior space and form, and by extension between the seen and the unseen. The coloured inside, which almost seems to evoke an internal source of illumination, also draws attention to the role of light in our spatial perception.
