I sure am. I don’t feature that much fine art. I studied sculpture for two years in college and especially loved working in wood. This series leaves me speechless. The creation of Bonsoir Paris, the “Duramen”(heartwood) series was “Born of a simple impulse, the one to break with conventional ways of exhibiting, BONSOIR PARIS and its team have imagined a series of frames so strongly mistreated that they have become unrecognizable. Their wish is to break the properties of the compound, a form of compromise as minimal and it is efficient.”
This piece is my favorite. The contrast of the chocolate-like wood and the white gallery wall is particularly striking. It’s hand-carved Glossy Wenge wood.
The piece below is polished oak and sanded fir
