Ron van der Ende: Bas-Relief Reclaimed Wood Sculptures

These wall-mounted bas-relief sculptures are constructed by Rotterdam based artist Ron van der Ende using reclaimed wood…

In van der Ende’s words:

I collect old doors and stuff. Old painted wood that I find in the street. I take it apart and skin it to obtain a 3mm thick veneer with the old paint layers still intact. I construct bas-reliefs that I cover with these veneers much like a constructed mosaic. I do not paint them!

His sculptures are nearly flat, but with his use of perspective, van der Ende creates the illusion that these objects have mass and depth– blurring the lines of reality between the 2-D and the 3-D. Learn more about Ron van her Ende’s work and method on his site and his interview on Diskursdisko.
