Love art? Like art? Think it's just okay? No matter what your stance - you will be amazed by this...

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

These are amazing, so visceral: I don't just want to touch it, I want to taste it! They have really pushed the boundaries.

It looks hard to do, but at the end it looks a bit like liquid poop... For me, art is not about the difficulty of the task, but about feeling and by looking at this I don't feel anything...
