Ben Young realizes glass sculptures inspired by his passion for nature, the ocean and the search for the perfect wave. Once again nature turns out to be great inspiration for those who know observe and appreciate it in its being wild and unpredictable.
This is exactly the case New Zealand sculptor Ben Young, who currently lives in Australia, who is dedicated to the exaltation of his passions. The ocean plays an important role in his work because avid surfer chose glass, and concrete to represent what he loves most and the places that he attended.
His sculptures are made by overlapping sheets of glass cut and assembled entirely by hand.
Each piece is unique and made without the use of special equipment for cutting the material. It is very interesting how he obtains a product made of three-dimensional using only two-dimensional materials that once assembled and composed in a single block give a fantastic result that captures the attention of its complexity.
This is real portions of land in section, remind me of very technical illustrations like the isometric snapshots used in architecture and engineering, for which I have always had a great passion.
The result of his sculptures must be explored because evolving. The light that passes through the glass makes the sculpture different every time, turn around and look for all the details to better appreciate the effort made by the artist.
