Four ... Your Imagination

Signature on the Back


four dancers, four flames, four plants, four birds,...? it's up to your imagination! this sculpture is made from the cut-off pieces of another sculpture project. i laminated the eight pieces on their planed sides and was surprised how four totally new shapes emerged. the wood is from old reclaimed Douglas fir wall studs with nail holes, discolorations, wild grain lines and other imperfections, providing lots of visual and tactile cues to explore.

My sculptures and wall art are inspired by nature, life and the uniqueness of the reclaimed wood I use. I enjoy the specific challenge of transforming an old and rustic material such as reclaimed redwood into contemporary sculptures and fine art. In my work I leverage the architectural qualities of the wood by laminating wood boards into larger blocks, sculpting organic shapes and exploring dynamic grain and natural color patterns. The old wood I am using has scratches, cracks, knots and other imperfections that are similar to real life. Every piece of wood is like a person, with its unique character, challenges and strengths. I yearn to give the wood a new life and I hope my sculptures and wall art inspire people to find a new awareness, purpose and joy in their own life. My art should also set an example that sustainability and re-use of material is not just a necessity, but a beautiful and inspiring part of our existence and future.
