Amazing Primitive Sculpture by Hugo Rodrigues
Hugo Rodriguez created his amazing works in wood in Brazil in the 1960´s, showing his works through NY´s Bonino Gallery on 57 TH Street. Successive layers of intricately carved designs are stacked to create the overall work. The Wood has been scorched by flame with the softer material removed, forming visually dazzling concentric designs similar to a topographic map in relief. Primitive ideas executed in a modern form. 69" H 47" W 18" D.
