Hsu Tung Han Creates Extraordinary Wooden Sculptures That Look Like Computer Screen Interference

He made a sculpture in pixel art style. He carved the sculptures with great detail and several wooden blocks were made as if they were separated from the sculptures.

Indeed, sculptures have become part of works of art a few centuries ago. Even in ancient times, the sculptures were not just a work of art, but also as the most exalted object like God. Of course in this day and age, that thing is gone and no one thinks of the sculpture as a sacred object. Even though today many sculptures have beautiful shapes and amazing details, sculptures remain only a work of art. No more than that. Behind making a sculpture, there must be a purpose and meaning in it. Something that is impossible if someone creates a sculpture without having a purpose and reason.

In general, the sculptures were created as a symbol of events or also as an icon of a region. The sculptures itself has many varieties and shapes. Ranging from concrete-based sculptures, stone-based sculptures, iron-based sculptures, to wooden-based sculptures. An artist from Taiwan named Hsu Tung Han made the sculptures in an unusual style that you have probably never seen before. The sculptures are made of wood with a unique shape. He made a sculpture in pixel art style. He carved the sculpture with great detail and several wooden blocks were made as if they were separated from the sculpture.

Han succeeded in creating an illusory wooden sculpture with a pixel style in three-dimensional (3D) form. Of course, you will be a little hard to imagine a sculpture that has a pixel style like an image on a computer. He has parts that look like flaking like one by one. He really managed to combine traditional carving styles with modern aesthetic elements who are one of the Taiwanese artists who developed the art of sculptures combining intricate pieces of wood into extraordinary figurative sculptures. The wooden sculptures of Han was a dynamic, ancient work of art.

This contemporary sculptor considers his work as a puzzle, carefully placing each piece in a preparation drawing and clay model. Then, pieces of walnut, teak, or African wood are carefully combined and worked on. The highlight of Han's works is "pix-elation" which appears in each picture. Using positive and negative space for large effects, wooden blocks can be pushed or pulled.

This gives his artworks a dynamism that seems to move. Whether they appear to rush forward or backward, these wooden sculptures are the masterpiece for this artist. Although Han has exhibited his wooden sculptures since the early 1990s, he developed his pixelated style in the late 2000s. After that, Han has created many extraordinary works of art, and one of the most famous is the sculpture called Snorkeling in 2017.

Han proved, if wooden sculptures don't always look ordinary, with a little creative touch, the results will look stunning. Instead of being curious about the results, let's just look at some of the pixel wooden sculptures by Hsu Tung Han below!
