Ron van der Ende

Ron van der EndeRon van der Ende constructs woodsculptures in semi-3D. The works are all between 15 and 25 cm deep, the perspective comes to life through the constructed mosaic of small woodpieces. In an interview with Diskursdisko Ron explains how he doesn’t paint the pieces of wood he collects, like old doors and stuff. The image is carefully reconstructed using the original found woodpiece colors.

Budget and availability being in the way of actually acquiring one of these pieces, I’ve started to collect images from van der Ende’s reliëfs. Today I edited them to the right resolution to put them on the desktop of our media server. So now we’ve got our own swivel-arm art slideshow. I don’t think I’ve ever been so satisfied with a plan B.

Granted, it’s not the same as the real thing. But on the bright side: we can now put up more than one of Ron’s pieces. Or we could switch to a different set, for instance to Kevin Cyr’s grafitti van series.

If you’re interested, here’s an overview of the tools used on this desktop.

    Hey Robin. That turned out pretty nice! Perhaps I should provide you with some hi-res pics for your convenience? Just say the word!

    Haha wow Ron, that would be great! I’m dying to see your reliefs in real life too, but I couldn’t find any current exhibitions.
