About

Abstract geometric three-dimensional wood wall sculpture in bright pastel hues of sage green, light grey, and beige "Turnabout", hand-carved wooden wall sculpture by Hudson Valley artist, Stephen Walling, made in 2021 23.5 x 36 x 2 inches Carved wood and acrylic paint on panel Signed, verso Can you hung horizontally or vertically This abstract, three-dimensional wall sculpture was made by sculptor, Stephen Walling, in 2021. The artist created the work by intricately incising blocks of wood into slanted rectangular shapes and arranging them in geometric linear patterns. The surface is painted varying shades of complementary earth tones of sage green, light grey, and beige. As the viewer moves around the piece, different pops of color are seen on the sides and shadows become accentuated. This piece can be hung vertically or horizontally. The sides are cleanly painted so framing is optional. 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.
