Automotive Relief Sculptures Project Beyond the Wall
This week’s Roundup features the amazing and unique work of Dutch artist Ron van der Ende, who creates only slightly three-dimensional works that pack a dimensional punch belying their modest 6.5” depth.
Using only found objects, van der Ende uses a roughly 3mm-thick layer from old doors, wood floors, and other sources of disused fragments of our modern industrial life and then lays them on top of a bias-relief sculpture, endowing them with a hard-worn and totally authentic patina. Inspired by everyday objects from life and pop culture, he sums up his passion as “basic boyish enthusiasm”—something any real Petrolista will be familiar with.
