WOOD SCULPTURES THAT ARE ACTUALLY MADE OF CERAMIC BY CHRISTOPHER DAVID WHITE
Christopher David White is an American artist that creates hyperrealistic sculptures that explore themes of growth and decay. Many of his sculptures are made from ceramic, further brought to life with acrylic paint.
Born in Bedford, Indiana, the Virginia-based American artist makes his predominantly clay sculptures by hand. With the theme of decay running throughout his work, White creates various pieces that resemble deteriorating pieces of wood, rusted metal, and other objects in the process of decomposition in order to explore the relationship between humans and nature.
He began his career in the arts through drawing and painting. His work has been shown both nationally and internationally, and held within numerous private collections.
His sculptural works are handmade predominantly from clay and rendered with acute attention to detail, often resembling decaying pieces of wood, rusted metal, and other objects in various stages of deterioration. These works explore the relationship between humanity and nature and humans’ apperception of their environment.
