Wandbild II

This wall art piece is full of surprises. At first glance, you see a wooden board with many small and even smaller holes. But here's the catch: If you photograph this artwork with a flash, something unexpected appears in the photo.

Three concentric lenses appear in the center of the image. But how are they created? The artist used different-sized drill bits for this. In the outer areas, the individual holes have a diameter of eight millimeters, gradually decreasing towards the center.

And there's another surprise in the picture: If you look very closely, you'll notice a section of the Milky Way running across the image. This effect was achieved by Daniel Bucur using varying angles for the individual drill holes. Light and shadow come together to form a whole.

Simple means produce a stunning effect, and Daniel Bucur's humor shines through in this piece.

Umarmung III

Two crooked branches wind around each other without directly touching. The title of this sculpture is "Embrace III." The artist used two solid branches from a cherry tree for this piece. First, the bark was removed with a chisel, and then, following the natural path of the branches, circular grooves were carved into them. The branches have natural irregularities, including longitudinal cracks and, most notably, holes from smaller branches. This imparts a very natural aura to the sculpture and creates an intriguing contrast with the perfectly crafted grooves.

These two branches contain a sense of life, and they are not rigid objects; they are beginning to move. They explore and entwine with each other, creating an embrace from their motion.

Licht & Schatten

Light and shadow are two very transparent poles, intangible, almost impossible to touch. That's why Daniel Bucur saw it as a challenge to create this effect from the non-transparent base material of wood.

Based on a serpentine, elongated piece of mulberry wood, the artist initially carved it into a block. Then, he made cuts on two sides at short intervals, giving it the appearance of a comb. With two additional vertical cuts, the artist subsequently created three columns that move apart towards the top. Due to the different surfaces in diametrical directions, the striking light is perceived as a strong contrast.

This sculpture is a play of light. Walk around the sculpture and view it from different angles and at various times of the day. You will discover new facets each time.

In Verbindung

At the center of this sculpture is the fragility of the connection. Solid yet delicate. The artist excels at uniting opposites.

In the middle of the elongated, solid wood block from an old lime tree, there is a window. As a contrast to the light wood, the outer contour has been stained dark. The intense color of the "exterior" directs the gaze inward to the essential. Two threads appear to intersect, but upon closer examination, they skillfully bypass each other at the tightest point, avoiding contact. This creates both tension and fragility. Because at low temperatures, the material shrinks, and the two threads almost touch. As the temperature rises, they move apart.

This process lasts forever; it is slow but constant and exudes a magical tranquility of opposites. It is worth taking a look at it every time you pass by.
