Creative Hands Gallery

Robert Scutt

"My sculptures are mostly figurative works, though my intent is not to express realism, but rather allude to a certain idea while letting the viewer discover the forms within.  With my wood sculptures, my goal is to bring the piece to it's fullest potential by showcasing its inherent beauty, while exerting my influence over the wood to achieve the desired form.  Each piece of wood contains its own story.  The different grains, colors, placement of knots and species all play a role throughout the process of creative a work.

I am a self-taught artist.  I started out painting, mostly expressionistic works.  In 2009 I began sculpting wood.  Creating art is what feeds my soul.  It's what makes my life complete"
