These sculptures and wall hangings are carved by Brian McEneny from Seal Rock, Oregon, USA.
Brian McEneny grew up in Southwest Washington.
In the early 70s, he moved to the Oregon coast. There, he met and worked with a couple of carvers who were just starting to use chainsaws to carve wood.
By the late 70s, he was carving full time and opened his first gallery in Seal Rock.
When Brian started carving, he did the whole gamut of chainsaw art from bears, eagles, owls, salmon and sea captains to cowboys, indians and totem poles.
In the mid 80s, he began carving marine animals, what has been his main body of work because of their shapes and fluidity.
Brian works with a variety of beautiful wood including Red Cedar, Black Walnut, Cypress, Maple, Myrtlewood and Port Orford Cedar.
