Hyperrealistic ‘Wood’ Sculptures that are Actually Made of Ceramic

 

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. In his artist statement, White explains:

With nature undergoing a perpetual transformation, everything derived from nature is subject to the same repetitive cycle of growth and decay—of life and death. Change is a constant reminder that permanence is the ultimate illusion. It is through the creation of hyper-realistic sculpture that I explore the relationship between nature, man, and the phenomenon of impermanence. I seek to expose the beauty that often results from decay while, at the same time, making my viewer question their own perception of the world around them.

 

Below are five standout artworks from Christopher that center around the subjects above. You can find much more of his work on his website and Facebook page.
