The following artworks are all handmade and carved almost exclusively with recycled and reclaim wood varieties. The wood species are individually chosen for their naturalistic visual qualities and aesthetic appearances. Optical illusions of man-made materials are created via carving and painting manipulations that present the carved wood to appear as synthetics and/or metallic materials.  These artworks resonate with deeply rooted references to Ecology, Biology and Sociobiology. The sculptures were created to directly address culturally significant topics such as ecological and environmental awareness, water access and sustainability, climate change, the affect of mankind and urban growth. 

All artwork is available for purchase unless otherwise noted. For artwork acquisitions, inquiries regarding exhibition, gallery representation, corporate and/or private commissions, please contact the artist http://www.dannonschroeder.com/contact/
