Italian sculptor Willy Verginer creates figurative sculptures from wood, pieces that allow his carving skills to stand out with minimal additions of monochrome bands of paint. His figurative sculptures are carved from solid pieces of linden-wood and often painted with acrylic or accompanied by additional materials. The oranges, greens, and blues, he adds places his subjects into unseen environments, like his sculpture of a small child who appears to swim through detritus covered in dark blue paint.
Other sculptures also point towards environmental decay, such as a figure that clutches a leaking gas can, and a stag that is altered by the oil canisters that serves as its base. You can see more of his minimally painted sculptures on his Instagram.
