Leonardo Drew large wall-mounted sculptures are made up of massive chunks of tree trunks paired with thousands of segments of cut wood.
The works are mostly monochromatic but sometimes the color does make its way onto the massive installations that come in the form of abstract landscapes featuring both natural and man-made shapes.
According to a statement from Talley Dunn Gallery where Drew exhibited his works in the Fall of 2017, “By manipulating the wood and other objects to weather and age them, Drew’s awe-inspiring sculptures reveal the artist’s intense attention to shaping, cutting, building, and working his pieces through his own material language. These densely stacked and layered sculptures activate the spaces in which they occupy with a dynamic presence whereby complexity and simplicity coexist.”
