Edvardas Racevicius is a Lithuanian sculptor who creates fine art with a chainsaw and a single piece of wood.
Racevicius uses shapes in the wood to help guide the sculpture, limbs form from branches and help to guide the process.
Whilst there are organic traits to the artworks the savagery of the cuts with chainsaw and chisel give pieces their own place.
I first saw a Racevicius statue at an art fair and loved the unfinished nature of the piece. I like the energy of the pieces they often look like explosions of life.
The pieces also have a weight to them and a smell, they react with the viewer on many levels, there's not much art you can experience and suffer a splinter from.
Racevicius has made a kind of anti art but the craft is in the lack of craftsmanship.
