Colourful pixelated wooden sculptures
Gil Bruvel, a painter, doesn’t limit himself to a single way of creating artwork. If Bruvel is drawing, carving, or producing practical artwork, his creative mind permeates every one of his creations. The Australian-born, European sculptor employs straightforward elements to convey intricate analogies in his Bending the Lines collection.
These painted wood poles were used to create these fragmented artworks, which were intended to demonstrate „stratigraphic dimension.“ A face appears on one half, while an explosion of abstract colour appears on the other. This contrast is a crucial element of the collection since it invites spectators to investigate each nook and cranny of the artworks. When examined closely, it is evident that Bruvel’s fluid use of wood reflects the intricacy and vitality of the human soul.
We are composed of intricate systems that affect how we conduct our everyday routines. In our brains, there is intimate neuronal connectivity that enables us to both sense and show feelings. According to Bruvel, these expressions represent the feelings that come with intense inward thought or contemplation. These paintings have an idealized image of synapses burning in the mind on the reverse. The arrangement of the wood pieces represents the largely unknown complexity of mind and resembles the various neural networks that contain human brain.
Even if every face is different, the fact that they are all tranquil also helps to convey an inner balance attained by careful contemplation. These calm expressions show the difference among outward and interior emotions as the mind’s brilliant connections keep firing.
Pixelated wooden figurines by Gil Bruvel feature a serene visage on one half and an unpredictable colour explosion on another.
„The sculptures can be viewed with a different viewpoint into the wrinkles and shades displayed inside the hand – painted statues from each perceptible aspect.“
These pieces of art serve as visual depictions of the collective unconscious when it engages in introspection.
