Days of Spring: Moments of Intimate Connections - Wood Sculpture by Christian Bouchard
March 28-July 26, 2009
Based in Southern Oregon, wood sculptor Christian Burchard creates sensuous wall sculptures from Pacific Madrone root burls. Blocks of this wood are cut into thin panels that the artist sandblasts and bleaches into series entitled "Skins" and "Torsos." The forms, with their undulations and textures, are supple and smooth, and bring to mind landscapes, maps and bodies.
