PAUL KAPTEIN: THE WARPED WOOD SCULPTURES

paul-kaptein-warped-sculptures-7Normal sculptures of human figures may be common, what about warped sculptures of human figures? Perth-based artist Paul Kaptein decided to bring the digital to “real life”, as he creates heavily warped interpretations of human figures by using large blocks of hand-carved wood where the figurative sculptures are occasionally split by a lamination process. Such process creates an effect that produces distinct fissures that add to the sense of distortion.

Inspired by the perspectives and relationships within a growing tech-oriented environment we now live in, Paul describes his works as an examination of unexplored binaries such as ”expansion and contraction, interconnection and incompleteness”. If you happen to be in New York now, drop by the Krause Gallery for Paul Kaptein x Eric van Straaten’s “Future Perfect” exhibition which will run until January 26, 2016.
