Finding his true niche as an artist, Ryan Kvande has created a breathtakingly unique collection of kinetic wooden wall sculptures: from the concept to the beautiful finishing touches, he handcrafts each wooden sculpture. Serious about perfection, the sculptures are meticulously measured, precisely cut, and undergo numerous stages of sanding. The strong Baltic birchwood receives several coats of wood dye applied in dark brown with cerulean blue, rust, or fiery red accents, emphasising its appealing grain. Further enhancing the timber details, a final coat of Tung oil, which is highly resistant to water, is rubbed into the wood. The result is a truly unique and captivating sculpture.
Two of the round works, Razzle and Trance, fascinate with their powerful, spinning motifs. One of the largest in the collection, Razzle measures 40 inches (101 cm) in diameter, while Trance is the smallest at 31 inches (78 cm) across. Both are finished with a dark brown dye.
