Stacks of Publications Carved from Wood by Randall Rosenthal
New York-based artist Randall Rosenthal carves photo-realistic stacks of comic books, magazines, newspapers and other objects from a single piece of wood.
“Each sculpture is carved from a single piece of Vermont white pine and carefully painted with acrylic paint to recreate the look and feel of weathered paper, newsprint, and crisp currency notes. With their amazingly convincing details and textures, they are so life-like that it is almost impossible to tell that they are sculptures unless one touches them. They are made all the more impressive as Rosenthal works from memory without any photographs or models to guide him.”Art Posted on March 6, 2014
