Victor Hempel – new work

Posted by: frank in News Add comments

DELIGHTED to receive a box of gems from the gallery’s wandering savant, Victor Hempel.  These works are split into two groups, the “Nature Boards”, where Victor uses a dremel rotary tool to carve out his image.  The raw material are pieces of found wood, worn by the sea and cast to the shore.  This artist finds the inherent beauty of the wood by grinding down.  The second group are rather wild and wonderful, his “Fiber Fish”.  The textured surface of these pieces is chopped rope, found on the shore.  I particularly like the collage of copper wire in them…..
