Redefining the solid qualities we attribute to wood, Xavier Puente Vilardell creates some striking sculptures.
The sculptor carves twisted screws and flowing ribbons out of blocks of pinewood. Some of the seemingly lightweight works are varnished with a deep, glossy coat in the final process while others are left to retain their natural, grainy looks. Vilardell shows that you really can’t go wrong with wood even nowadays when there’s a big push from artists towards finding new and innovative materials for creative experimentation.
