We have some very talented members here when it comes to shaping a block of wood into a pipe but I have never seen anything like this before. Can't imagine how much work must go into something like these...

Looks like the Next Step for the Photorealism crowd (paintings that look like photos).

Very cool.

100% skill, technique, and patience, though, not artistry in the usual sense of the world. Nothing new has been brought into existence, just something that was already there replicated in non-original materials.

Give the guy a block of briar and I bet he could give Trever Talbert a run for his money come Halloween time.

if you can carve your own money, do you really need to carve anything else?

The woodworking is incredible and the painting is just outer worldly - bet you this guy can do a hell of a job just pissing in the snow...

Actually, pissing in the snow with wood is very...um...hard. I know. I'm a horny Canuck.

Well, you can say that about a lot of art. A ton of subjects were already "there" before artists painted or sculpted them in non-original materials. Twisted Evil

No argument there. I still think that makes such things a matter of skill and technique, though, not artistry.

I think I just have a tighter definition than most concerning what constitutes an artist, is all. (Creation of something that's never been seen/heard/etc before = yes; replication of a pre-existing thing (no matter how skillfully done) = no)
