Reminiscent of a groomed set wave breaking at Sunset Beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in ‘Wavescape’, Kean complements an a-frame wave in the foreground with billowing cumulonimbus clouds in the background. There is a sense of movement throughout the piece achieved through carefully carved lines; flowing and curving through the wood. The clouds appear to be drifting through the sky but also eliciting a feeling of time standing still. A variety of mark making into the wood were implanted in this piece, A sharp gouge and a steady hand led the way.
