Wood turner

Oberbacher Simon

Simon Oberbacher’s sculpture is archaic. It harks back to mankind’s primordial beginnings, the first shapes devised as a means for carrying food or liquids, which however already existed in nature (the egg). The artist creates large bowls from a single piece of wood, essential shapes associated with the age-old theme of the mother’s womb. He finely turns them and leaves them to dry out so that the wood moves. The final result is a vital asymmetry, which is also expressed through tiny fractures that the artist ultimately sutures to create a decorative effect.
