Tree Spirits Wood Carving - Denis Gobeil

Tours
Art Crawl #
26
Art Crawl showing with
Disciplines

My name is Denis Gobeil. I went to Vancouver Art School for two years and experimented with multiple mediums, and I found that sculpture is my passion. My love for nature reflects in every piece that my hands bring forth. Each tree spirit comes alive with its own personality. I allow the wood to tell me if it wishes to be a family, a couple, or a single face.
I use cottonwood bark because of it softness. I also walk the beaches of B.C. and collect beach bark for each piece.
Tree spirits are organic art and I am blessed to be able to share them.

Art Crawl Details

I like to imagine that every piece of tree bark has a face in it, hiding beneath its weathered surface.
It is my passion to reveal the faces and to uncover their expressions of joy, peace, kindness, humour, doubt and compassion.
Tree spirits are organic art and I am blessed to be able to share them.
