Discarded chunks of wood become colorful and dynamic assemblages

Discarded chunks of wood become colorful and dynamic assemblages

These hanging sculptures are so well-composed that one will never guess they were made out of discarded pieces of wood.

New Zealand-based artist Louise McRae uses hand-split pieces of discarded wood in small fragments to create beautiful, contemporary assemblages. From afar they capture the appearance of what you’d typically see in aerial photographs of cities and foliage. Each sculpture is visually-enhanced with acrylic paints, foil, and even charred with fire in some cases. Check out some of McRae’s works below and find more at Seed Gallery and Gallery 33.
