"At first you’re drawn into a false sense of reality, and then you discover it’s not real at all. To me, that’s what life is all about."(c)
- Tom Eckert

+++++
"My sculptures are formed entirely of wood. I use traditional technical processes in carving, constructing, and painting these pieces. Through these objects I create mimetic images that create a game of pretend for the audience, a fantasy. During the act of viewing, a tension is created between the object of fantasy and its empirical reality. By using wood to reproduce objects normally made of other materials; I create a double reality that contrasts perceived truth with actuality - my intention is to blur the line between reality (as perceived) and the unreal. The replicated objects within the compositions serve as metaphors. I am always challenged to push the materials and the technical processes to their extremes. Because tradition sustains realities, I draw from it and hope to contribute to this narrative. "










"Seven Plus One" . linden wood, cocobolo, lacquer


"Still Life with Lemons" . linden, eucalyptus, lacquer
