Whimsical Forest Sculptures By Spencer Byles
Artist Spencer Byles created mystical forest sculptures during a 12-month period while exploring forests in the region of Alpes-Maritimes, in France. For this project, he used only ‘natural sourced materials’ and man-made found objects to build and sculpt spectacular, large-scale art works in three forests.
Byles’ pieces have an inevitably ephemeral aspect, which has become an important characteristic in his work and creation process. In a statement, he explains, “I feel my sculptures are only really completed when nature begins to take hold again and gradually weave its way back into the materials. At this point it slowly becomes part of nature again and less a part of me.”
