About

abstract three-dimensional wall sculpture, acrylic and wood on panel carved pieces of wood painted in shades of white, grey and beige with an accent of mint green. 18 x 20 x 2.5 inches, can be oriented vertically or horizontally Dynamic and graphic wall sculpture carved out of wood. This abstract, modern three-dimensional wall sculpture was made by sculptor, Stephen Walling, in 2017. The artist created the work by intricately carving blocks of wood in graphic, geometric patterns that were then painted with acrylic paint and adhered to a solid wood panel backing. The sculpture pairs well in any decor, especially with a mid-century modern aesthetic. The squares of wood are carved at different designs and depths in a linear pattern so a playful and graphic three-dimensional effect is achieved. Each strip of wood is painted is painted with different shades of white, grey and beige with an accent of mint green. This piece changes depending on which angle you are viewing it. Playful carved wood patterns are visible from all angles, adding an interactive element to the piece. It measures 18 x 20 inches and can be hung vertically or horizontally. About the artist and work: Stephen Walling demonstrates a trained eye with wall relief sculptures of colorfully painted wood strips and blocks, intricately carved and composed into graphic arrangements. Although Walling’s sculptures are crafted around a dedication to color and shape, his newest body of works reveals a shift in inspiration and evolution in studio process. In earlier work, the artist took his cues from nature; representational forms based on the shapes of trees, slopes of the Catskill mountains and even aerial views were most prevalent. He also experimented with photo-collage, pasting images of back lit forests on varying heights of wood. More recently, Walling has found increasing comfort in the possibilities of abstraction. Walling now follows a kind of ‘mind-map’, influenced by almost anything and everything, when creating a new sculpture. The premeditated image leads Walling to the selection of all colors, shapes, and arrangements. Recent work demonstrates a fascination with light and shadow. Individual pieces of intricately carved wood unite to create various shadows that work to create a dazzling optical illusion. Ranging depths of wood are often enhanced with color painted on different sides of each block. This hint of color encourages the viewer’s eye to travel throughout Walling’s surfaces as perspective reveals transitions in palette and shadow.
