Ron van der Ende’s bas relief sculptures use small incisions, light, and line to make flat planks of salvaged wood seem as though they have more depth than they do. Sculpted and painted for dimensional illusion, van der Ende’s work includes shapes such as stacked letters, dramatic forms such as a volcano, and mundane subjects such as a tree stump. Each piece looks as though it is suspended in the air, craftily fooling the eye and amplifying its exploratory possibilities.
