WILDLIFE SCULPTURES BY EARL MARTZ
Please call for pricing 989-561-5369. We're pleased to bring you our latest inclusion of one-of-a-kind showpieces by artist Earl Martz. As a professional of more than 30 years, Martz has been evolving a background of painting and carving to combine abstract shapes in found wood and sculpting technique, to create with impressionistic flair, his strikingly realistic fascination in animals.
"It occurred to me that nature and animal could become one in sculpture- the gentle twist of strong wood matching the subtle curves of a wild animal. In searching out only the best pieces to begin working with, I'll immediately go for pleasing lines and only select something with a heightened visual appeal, but some of these pieces will sit for a couple of years or more before becoming something that I will use to bring out a particular animal. 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. It can be hard to describe the process of making each one into a particularly original work of art, because that choice of matching the wood to a certain form doesn't happen everyday, but when it finally does come about, you know you've got the best shape for what the wood is going to become."
It is just this sort of carefully exploring imagination making each original piece into something more clever than one-of-a-kind, like nature itself; possessing a nearly living soul, each carving looking back into you with the same wonder you can place on each and every artwork by Martz. Anyone having a strong wildlife interest should preview the simply amazing pieces, along with the detail images to these exclusive sculptures.
