Gear: Automotive Relief Sculptures Project Beyond the Wall

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.

Too cool! Amazing depth, proportions, and texture. Love the studio with tons of natural light. Lots of great work on his website, too.
He has his system dialed in.
Thanks for sharing.
