Wooden Sculptures by Michael Rea

If you have ever had the privilege of viewing a work by artist Mike Rea, chances are you were instantly captivated by his amazing geek-inspired wood sculptures.

Michael masters the art of crafting wood into sculptures of objects that are normally symbolized with materials such as metal, glass or plastic. Wood undergoes renaissance on passing through the hands of the characteristic mentor, who reads ’sublime is unattainable,’ yet very subtly nullifies the notion. The extremely detailed woodwork, ranging from sculptures of things used in space, in war, under the water or to play some melodious music, it’s all a result of his memory, ‘thought’ as I put it above.
