ron van der ende: bas relief in reclaimed wood

‘still life’, 2010 bas-relief in salvaged wood 180 x 102 x 12 cm

rotterdam-based sculptor ron van der ende focuses on creating wall-mounted bas-reliefs constructed from salvaged wood. he utilizes all of the reclaimed wood’s original colors – not painting it himself – and textures to create his three-dimensional compositions of photo realistic mosaics. van der ende collects old planks and doors to develop his sculptures, many of which mimick various iconic forms of transportation. his work was recently presented by seattle gallery ambach & rice at the armory show 2011.
