Three-Dimensional Artworks by Ron van der Ende

Dutch artist Ron van der Ende uses salvaged wood to produce these amazing bas-relief sculptures.

“In 2000 I came up with a way to construct wall mounted bas-reliefs from salvaged wood. The original color and texture of the wood is utilized to form a gripping and realistic mosaic, a realism further enhanced by the perspective built into the relief.

By now I have built over a hundred of these works with themes ranging from cars and architecture to tree stumps and even a cut of meat. I am interested in artifacts that have once inspired enthusiasm but that we have come to look upon with indifference. I want to reexamine these objects thoroughly and up close. I want to hold them to the light and see how their meaning has changed.”

— Ron van der Ende
