Wooden sculptures by Paul Kaptein


Paul Kaptein creates amazing wooden sculptures, exploring the notion of the now as a remix of past and future potentialities.

By sampling various cultural and temporal possibilities, Kaptein’s work is resulting in an expression of things not quite truth, yet not quite fiction. For him, carving wood is a perfect platform to explore these themes, as wood suggests past, present and future. “Its’ growth is dependant on the gaps in the universe – pushing through the soil, climbing into space – wood in itself seems to me a prime example of how material is made up of much negative space.”
