Christian Burchard

Each material has its own life, and one cannot, without punishment, destroy a living material to make a dumb and senseless thing. We must not try to make materials speak our language. We must go with them to the point where others understand their language.
—Constantin Brancusi

Christian Burchard creates wooden sculptures that have textures and qualities that display different characteristics of wood. It is almost like he frays the fibres, opening them out revealing a softness almost like paper or textile.
