These sculptures are made by Jamie Brick from Perth Road Village, Ontario, Canada.
Jamie started with wood carving but now sculpts in mixed media.
He works from life-casts and incorporates elements of nature, such as drift wood and old cedar roots, into his sculptures to create truly unique and beautiful work.
Carefully crafted, slightly disconcerting and whimsically comical Artist’s Statement from his website:
“Abandoned as an infant, Jamie Brick was taken in and raised by a pack of wild medieval rabbits. This unusual upbringing reflects in this artist’s eyes as he sculpts, stone, wood and mixed media into creatures from a world that lies just left of centre. ”
“My work reflects a didactic ascension into a downward spiral, metamorphasizing into a translucent solid of good vs evil and my fear of abandonment.”
