Denis Fafard – Wood Sculpture
As a sculptor, I seek to express the spirit and beauty of life, not some idea we might have about it.
That spirit is there, waiting to be revealed in the reclaimed wood I use; battered roots, trunks and limbs marked by decay, discards from industrial logging,
Not knowing is the most intimate.
The tension and play of sculpture is only revealed when seen in person. And of course there is the sensuality of undulating line, the silkiness of the wood finish and the delicate play of shadow.
Showing with David Evanson during the 2023 Art Crawl.
