$3,800

About

Wenge is a dense African hardwood with a rich dark color and distinctive pattern. This hand carved and shaped sculpture brings out the natural beauty of the wood's graceful structure. This sculpture is mounted to a custom black granite base. Steve Turner Still Hand carved Wenge Measures: 19.75 H x 21 W x 5 D in 50.16 H x 53.34 W x 12.70 D cm Artist statement The pursuit of art is a lifelong journey for me. An early introduction to sculpting by my father set me on a path that I would follow for a lifetime. My education at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago brought me some early success and attention. My career as a writer and art director for a large advertising agency took off early life but it was sculpting that always fed my passion. Wood has been my medium of choice and it is the material I feel most comfortable working with. By nature, wood has a quality of unruliness to it, knots and swirls, rough textures and variation in color, but when working with it, it also allows you to discover its structure and to bring out its beauty. In this way working with wood reminds of working through the struggles of daily life. Steve Turner.
