Art Description

Sculpture: Wood, Stone, Paint, Environmental and Found Objects on Wood and Stone.

No time for a safari? Maybe you just love the raw beauty of the wild places in this world. This could be a great piece for you. Imagine this mighty beast in your safari inspired space. This warthog, made from driftwood and other materials from nature, is frozen in an action packed moment that conjures images of fight or flight in the wilds of Africa. If you love the wilderness like I do, you just might love this piece like I do. My work embodies nature itself by combining flora and fauna, with a touch of semi-precious stone.

It is an assemblage sculpture, using various pieces of driftwood built off the main piece which runs from head to tail. The hair mane and tufts are made from pine needles and cotton fibres. The hooves, teeth, and the focal point of this piece, the tusks, are all made from a variety of cow bone parts. As always with my sculptures, I incorporate a stone mineral, usually for the eyes. For the warthog, I made his eyes using black onyx stones.

Prior to assembly, all materials go through a cleaning and heat treatment process. Once assembled, the sculpture has some stain applied for color matching, and is finished with a sealant.

As with all my animal sculptures, my intention is to take the viewer out of the concrete jungle, and into the real jungle.
