Incredible Hand-Carved Wood Sculptures of Surreal Figures

Sculptor Morgan Herrin takes his time to perfect each of his hand-carved wooden sculptures. Each piece in the dedicated craftsman’s collection takes over a year to complete, resulting in intricately detailed works of art. Using otherwise cheap and disposable materials like construction grade 2×4’s, Herrin transforms the recycled lumber into stunning life-size figures infused with elements of surrealism.

Though his collection may not be as vast as other wood sculptors, the artist manages to create works that reflect his concentrated efforts. Also, unlike many other creatives in his field, Herrin takes hundreds of hours working with hand tools to construct each piece.

The meticulous sculptor says, “I immerse myself in the subject matter of my work. Often, several very different forms combine to create one physical object. My process is ultimately a result of the combination of my fascination with figurative sculpture of the past and obsessive research into a subject. I reference the passage of time and its effect on art in terms of both physical change and change in viewer perception.”
