Artist Spencer Byles spent almost one year in the woods creating beautiful surreal sculptures from organic materials. The great act of devotion to his art, sculptural artist found materials throughout the unmanaged forests of La Colle Sur Loup Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins. He lives with his family at this place and worked together with elements of his natural talent by surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment.
His project is intentionally secretive and there’s only way you’ll see this work short of his photos is by going into the woods and finding them yourself. I imagine that coming upon such a imaginary structure unexpectedly in the woods is sure to be quite a enchanted surprise. Moreover, one of the most attractive things about his artwork is its brief nature. The pieces were not intended to last, and apiece sculpture will ultimately be reclaimed by the natural environment that helped Byles shape it. This full circle gives the organic pieces a potent poetic and philosophical touch.
