We're pleased to introduce you to the latest selection of one-of-a-kind showpieces by artist Earl Martz and Frank Newmyer. As professionals of more than 60 combined years of experience, Newmyer and Martz have been evolving their background of painting and carving to combine sculpting technique with abstract shapes in found wood.
Earl states, "It occurred to me that the gentle twist of strong wood matches the subtle curves of a wild animal. Nature and animal could become one in sculpture. Over a period of 15 years now, I've found outstanding pieces of wood from Maine to Montana... even down in the bayous of Louisiana. I'm immediately attracted to very pleasing lines and only select something that has heightened visual appeal. That choice of matching any wooden shape to a certain form doesn't happen to me everyday though. Some of these pieces will actually sit for a couple of years or more before becoming something that I will use to bring out a particular animal.”
Anyone having a strong wildlife interest should preview these simply amazing pieces. Each carving looks back into you, so striking that you will want to touch it to see if it’s real. Each original piece is a one-of-a-kind, like nature itself. Contact us to see more.
