Wall Sculptures: A Journey Through Texture and Tradition

Wall Sculptures: A Journey Through Texture and Tradition

Welcome to the world of wall sculptures
– where every surface tells a story! –

In home decor, the walls serve as blank canvases awaiting a touch of creativity and character. While paintings have long been the standard choice, there exists a realm of artistry that goes beyond the confines of two-dimensional pieces. 

At Galerie Sommerlath, we believe in the transformative power of wall sculptures. From sleek metal compositions to timeless bronze pieces and intricate wooden carvings, our curated collection offers a glimpse into the diverse and captivating world of sculptural art.

Metal Wall Art Sculptures

Metal wall sculptures have emerged as icons of modern design, with their clean lines and reflective surfaces adding a touch of sophistication to any space. Artists like Curtis Jere and Stephen Chun infuse their creations with geometric patterns and metallic finishes, creating pieces that are as visually striking as they are elegant.

Bronze Wall Art Sculptures

For those who appreciate history and craftsmanship, bronze sculptures offer a timeless allure that transcends trends. Often overshadowed by other materials, bronze boasts durability and versatility that have stood the test of time. Our collection features works like the Patinated Bronze Wall Sculpture by Venancio Blanco, combining form and expression in a unique way.

Wooden Wall Art Sculptures

Wooden wall sculptures celebrate the organic beauty of nature, capturing the intricacies of the natural world with the sculptor's skills. Pieces like William Westenhaver's endearing depiction of a young boy lost in a book transport viewers to a world of imagination and wonder.

But beyond their decorative appeal, wooden wall sculptures offer a deeper connection to cultural heritage and artistic tradition. African art, once marginalized as "primitive" by Western standards, has experienced a renaissance, reclaiming its rightful place in the global artistic conversation. Influencing trailblazers like Picasso and Matisse, African art serves as a testament to the power of cultural exchange and creative expression.

Mixed Material Wall Art

In addition to metal, bronze, and wood, mixed material wall art offers a captivating blend of textures and forms that ignite the imagination. These pieces create a dynamic dialogue between different elements, inviting viewers to explore the interplay of materials and textures. At Galerie Sommerlath, we showcase works like Craig French's "Double," a stunning Large Wall Sculpture that exemplifies the fusion of diverse materials. This piece features black glass rods, hammered copper, patinated and brushed steel, and a delicate pearly presence, all coming together to create a harmonious and visually arresting composition. Craig French, a contemporary pop-Constructivist sculptor, is renowned for his meticulous craftsmanship is evident in every detail, from the cut and polished materials to his color-texture combinations.
