Phil Young – the dendrophile
Do you like trompe l’oeil? If you don’t know French, that means ‘deceive the eye’, or in terms of art, a super-realistic 3D rendering of a scene or object often achieved in only two dimensions. It’s an art form that both delights and challenges the viewer, as is the case with the quirky wood art by UK woodworker Phil Young.
Shown here are Phil Young's sculpted 3D impressions that portray wood in a differently dynamic way. Phil Young uses other materials besides wood to question, in his own words ‘everything from their place in contemporary culture through to the very tactility of their nature’.
