3D Art Made Entirely From Discarded Wood

3D Art Made Entirely From Discarded Wood

Without adding any paint or added elements, Ron Van Der Ende constructs sculptures out of found material.

Using only found wooden objects, artist Ron Van Der Ende creates three dimensional paintings that use nothing more than the painted wood’s original pigments. All of his materials come from dumpsters and warehouses where he stocks up enough to always have the proper colors on hand.

He explains his process to Fast Co Design:

How he works: “I start by taking the [wood] object apart and removing screws, nails, and hinges. After that I use a saw-bench to cut the wood into veneers around 3mm thick. Any rest of the material is used in the construction of the bas-relief shape. When it is done I apply the veneers with nails and glue to the bas-relief as a mosaic creating or enhancing the illusion of shadows, reflections, and perspective.”
