Chris Hedrick's work in sculpture ranges from realistically carved wood pieces to found object constructions... and everything in between.
For the wood pieces, everyday objects like tools, clothing, toys and guns are carved from a single block of wood at a natural scale to trick the viewer's mind. Textures and gestures conjure words like soft, limp, melting or stretched - words not associated with wood.
Hedrick doesn't confine his sculpture to carving. His other 3-D pieces are created from combining found objects - sticks, doll parts, boxes - into human-like figures.
