Artist Gil Bruvel doesn’t confine himself to one method of producing creative work. Whether painting, sculpting, or creating functional art, Bruvel’s creative energy flows through each of his pieces. For his Bending the Lines series, the Australian-born, French-raised artist uses simple materials to express complex metaphors.

For his unusual figurative sculptures artist Gil Bruvel splits lengths of lumber into manageable sticks which he arranges and paints in bright shades of blues, greens, and reds. On one side, the wooden pieces configure into faces at rest in peaceful expressions, while on the reverse they remain jumbled and abstract. The pixelated sculptures appear like sophisticated pieces of three-dimensional pin art that reveal permanent images of faces, instead of temporary impressions of a nose or hand.

In recent work, Gil Bruvel carefully arranges pieces of wood, with startling faces emerging. This is just one example of the sculptor’s work, which also spans metalworking, oil painting, and several other mediums. The artist’s larger sculptures, in particular, tend to render the human head in unexpected ways.

Wood. Paint. Meditative process. The latest series by Gil Bruvel has seen a shift in his artistic unmaterial of choice. This comes with no surprise from this innovative artist, who is consistently pushing his artwork to new heights. Containing large wall sculptures and pixelated forms, this series has been well received. With his artistic representation by Frederic Got Gallery, this series was presented and sold at Art CONTEXT and Art MIAMI in December 2018 and the Palm Beach Modern and Contemporary in early January 2019. The individuality that exists within each artwork of Bending the Lines can be accredited to both the material and Bruvel’s precise hand. Taking lengths of straight lumber and splitting them into wood sticks ranging in size, a meticulous effort was made by Bruvel to create enthralling artworks of great topographical depth.

What has always impressed us about Gil Bruvel is his ability to push the limits. Not only on the medium he is working with, which, like what he showed at the Juxtapoz Clubhouse in Miami were stainless steel sculptures, but just testing the limits of how he approaches new materials and narratives in his work. His newest solo show, Bending the Lines, which opens at Laura Rathe Fine Art in Houston on March 21st, sees the artist working with wood and exploring the boundaries of the material in a new series of almost painting-like-sculptures.
