Sasha Holzer

The carefully carved wooden panels made by Sasha Holzer (b. 1959, UK) also show a profound and meticulous knowledge of the properties of the materials used. Light is reflected at different angles on the shallow relief of the carvings, revealing the multifaceted grains in the wood. Patterns emerge organically, sometimes through a sort of domino effect. These highly geometric works are born out of a very intuitive physical relationship with the material and the carving tools.
