Fantastic Wood Sculptures by Gehard Demetz

Italian artist Gehard Demetz applies his incredible craftsmanship as a traditional woodcarver to create beautifully disturbing sculptures of children.

“His sculptures of children are at the same time attractive and disquieting and rendered with an amazing perfection that is by no means rhetorical or classical. One of the most startling technical features is the construction using small woodblocks and juxtaposing finely polished parts to very rough and sketchy surfaces. This particular construction and treatment render his sculptures absolutely unique in the domain of contemporary wood sculpture and is partly responsible for the great curiosity aroused by the appearance of his work in the art world.”
