Marc Lamm - the Art of Wood
I work with wood like a painter works with oils and a sculptor with stone.
The lines and shapes in my art are the natural colors of solid wood joined along curves. No inlays, veneers, dyes or stains are used.
Each piece is carved to create shapes and textures and finished with modified tung oil which makes it durable and easy to clean.
My art has life. From a distance, lines, shapes, contours and shadows are easily seen. But as you move, the change in perspective changes the image. When a light source moves, shadows in the piece move with it like the sun moving across a landscape.
As you approach the piece, shallow contours appear like swells on a lake.
You can and should touch the silk-smooth undulating surface of the wood.
