Wood & the History of Art
Wooden building and sculpting are some of the oldest, most enduring crafts in the world. Whether used for sculpture, a frame or as a stretcher for a painting on a canvas, wood as a material is integral to artistic practice, both for its practical and aesthetic qualities. The first example of decorative wood sculpture can be traced back to ancient Egypt, and from there was used in crafts around the world, including Swedish folk instruments and utensils for the indigenous people of northern Canada and Alaska.
Alexander Grigorev is an artist and architect working across sculpture, installation, jewellery and architecture. His conceptual approach draws on themes such as popular culture and traditions in Russian and Asian art. Alexander’s series of Molecule works are highly intricate wall sculptures that are finished in gold paint to give them an Art Deco aesthetic. In a similar way to Alexander, Andrij Savchuk creates wall sculptures out of wood, and then finishes them with colourful and monochrome patterns.
