Unique Wooden Sculptures by Paul Kaptein

Paul Kaptein’s wooden sculptures are made out of laminated wood, with panels that slide back and forward creating holes that Dr. Ric Spencer explains as creating their own holes which exasperate the gaps in the fabric of the universe. Paul currently has an exhibition of ‘The Contours of Emptiness’ project open until December 1st at Moores Building, Contemporary Art Gallery in Fremantle.

As Paul puts it – the laminated wood starts the enactment of key principles: expansion and contraction, interconnection and incompleteness. Once again the material processes of Paul’s push toward inmaterialism – finding life through the dissection of (material) language. In this sense Paul is asking language, the description of materialism as process in this case, to become the energetic impact of the work, the spark that ignites the fusion that creates transformation (which in itself is form).
