Farm board collection SERIES: 011S
An independent project by Jeff Holmberg using reclaimed wood from Midwest farms & hand weathering treatments to painted design. Ink stamps & old metal type used to make impressions into Douglas Fir.
My Grandpa Joseph Hanson owned a painting business, and my Grandpa Eldon Holmberg was a farmer. This series is in honor of the work of their hands, combining paint with farm boards salvaged from Midwest barns.
I wanted to explore a design project that would face my family & I with daily reminders.
The design direction came from a growing appreciation for simple, minimal design found in train cars and vintage print. Some areas interest that contributed to this piece were: letterpress, hand stamping, numbers, sets, weathered signs/print, reclaiming/repurposing, old things new / new things old.
The idea behind the content explores our daily need for perspective, exploring contentment and who we become in encouraging others.
I've always been intrigued by the unseen / seen relationship that exists around us. Seeds sprouting from dirt into sky making fruit/shade/shelter that did not exist before. Similarly, ideas in our minds, exist with potential to sprout into time & space, becoming tangible and real in the lives of others, encouraging, protecting, and sustaining; changing their day. Something important happens when we surprise others from out of nowhere with an unexpected drink, note, or expression.
