Innovative Artist Christian BurchardInnovation award
USA- Santa Fe, NM | Jul 25 2012 | (23:05:30 - EDT)
The other wood artist, Christian Burchard, approaches his art in a different sort of manner. Madrone burl wood, often viewed as a cast off because of its snarly and idiosyncratic ways, is his wood of choice. Burchard listens to the wood and moves with it, never forcing movement which is not there.
He has created a series of books, "Another Library Dynasty," asserting the book shape as a sculptural form. The books, varying in size and shape are placed casually in an arrangement predetermined by the artist which can also be altered by the viewer. He also has created a series of 12 vessels, ranging from mini to 8” in diameter, "Red Baskets" that are playfully scattered around each other.
Christian Burchard will appear in the "Sofa Lost & Regained" exhbition at the Jane Sauer Gallery from August 4-14, 2012.
