Colorful Pixelated Wood Sculptures Reveal Complexities of the Human Spirit

Colorful Pixelated Wood Sculptures Reveal Complexities of the Human Spirit

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.
