Artist: Ron van der Ende

Ron van der Ende is a sculptor living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. van der Ende specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. He is a photorealistic sculptor using found wood and the work is freaking fantastic. Ripe loves the way his work fucks with your mind - from a distance you are totally convinced that the work is 3d but on closer inspection its completely flat and your brain starts to fight with what you are seeing - it's not flat it screams, it's not!

van der Ende writes on his site, "The original color and texture of the wood is utilized to form a gripping and sometimes photorealistic mosaic. The realism is further enhanced by the perspective built into the relief. Van der Ende uses his method to conjure up dark industrial and space age imagery." Ripe wants one for the office! *hint, hint* ha!
