‘What Knots’ By Bobby Hinkel

Leftovers — be it food, fabric or wood — offer a bit of excitement to a creative. “What can I do with this?” is a great starting point for innovation. That’s exactly what artist Bobby Hinkel did with the wood pieces he had that were discarded from home renovations, shipping crates and lumber stores. Thus, his starburst design was born. “Every piece of wood has lived a previous purpose and has a story enclosed within it,” he said. “Just like people, wood can be exposed to various elements throughout its lifespan. I bring each piece of discarded wood back to life in every exhibition, giving each fragment a new direction.”
