One piece (we should say pieces really) from Coarse & Amanda Visell that you appreciate even more when you physically see would be “Last Days of Autumn” out of the Coarse releases so far. Having had the chance to see one in person It made us want one and this will be our chance and it could be yours too.
“Witness the last minutes in the life of a log who surrenders to axe-wielding children. This exciting collaboration between coarse and Amanda Visell explores the power of humans over nature, touching on themes prevalent in both artists’ bodies of work.”
Concept by Amanda Visell – Sculpted and Produced by coarse
Last Days of Autumn – Chop Chop
Last Days of Autumn – Chop Chop presents the mischievous children and the helpless log in the original colourway first presented as a painting by Amanda Visell. Designed by Visell and sculpted by coarse, Chop Chop is a handpainted vinyl showpiece and the final colourway in the series.
In natural shades of mossy green and walnut brown, the stump surrenders to the children. Witness the final moments of the log as the children corner him, swinging their axes high, preparing to carry him to their village and reduce him to firewood for the long winter ahead.
The set includes the entire scene: the stump, four axe-wielding children, two fallen leaves, and five chunks of wood the boys and girls have already hacked away. Clear magnet bases guaranteeing a secure stance of each child are also included in the set, allowing you to dramatize the scene as you see fit.
This landmark piece is one of the most complex we have ever created, and we are excited to offer you this one last opportunity to add it to your collection as the design was the first imagined.- Coarse

Way back in October 2014 Coarse & Amanda Visell showcased their joint venture at Bloom Art Fair Cologne Presented by Artscouting Gallery Cologne Köln, Germany. One piece of Coarse & Amanda Visell art was “First days of despair” which you can read about HERE. This led to more work with Coarse & Amanda Visell like “Last Days Of Winter”.
