Leonardo Drew uses natural materials and found objects to create his sculptures. By subjecting these objects to various weathering processes - such as burning and oxidation - Drew fuses the individual elements into cohesive units. The finished works continue to react and even disintegrate as a result of these treatments. The three elements that comprise Number 29A decay slowly over time, mirroring the existence of a living thing.
