The polished wood of this hand-carved sculpture by artist Jana Osterman accentuates the sensual quality of this piece. Osterman finds inspiration for her work in shapes and patterns found in nature. Biomorphic forms are intended to evoke images of living things whether plants or humans. “This series of carved wood pieces was an exploration of textured biomorphic forms, using the wood growth lines as an addition to the rhythmic, shape shifting topography.” Jana Osterman Born in Slovenia, Jana Osterman moved to Holland where she studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
