Wood Sculptures of Willy Verginer

Italian artist Willy Verginer works with wood as his primary sculpting material. Carving away at solid pieces of linden wood from the northern region of Italy, he creates beautifully rendered, figurative sculptures. The life-sized works are then finished with acrylic paint and at times with the addition of other materials to create different textures. The sculptures all possess a sense of otherworldliness, yet they are all somehow realistic. The surreal, imaginary aspect that Verginer inserts in his works, lies in the strange gestures of his figures and the unexpected objects, animals and other elements that wouldn’t normally be present.
