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.
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.
