The art of old wood
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira's first solo show in the US opens at Houston's Rice Gallery on 26 March. Oliveira uses wood collected from the streets of São Paulo to create huge installations that he calls "tridimensionals". The thin sections of wood, obtained from old fencing and boarding known as "tapumes", are bent and curved into these enormous structures that seem to spill off the gallery walls. Click through for some more pictures of Oliveira's work and go here for some images of how he puts the structures together. Originally spotted on designboom.com.

HUGE, TITANIC, ENORMOUS MAZE OF WOOD FLOATING TIN THE SPACE.
Amazing! Beautiful, inspiring, large, fantastic!
So much depth...the one in Conselho, Britanico looks like it want to absorb you into it's world...
Outstanding...please schedule your artwork with Art Basel in Miami Beach or Design Miami in Miami...we'd love to see your work in person.
These shows are held in December every year, and I can't recall seeing anything of this magnitude.
Beautiful vision...reminds me of Gehry's architecture.
