what was once a tree : art : marc sparfel : barcelona

i met marc sparfel in may, just before i was about to open my shop. a friend of mine showed me this picture of his workshop, and i had to investigate. i wrote, and the next day had an invite to his studio, on the next street to my home. a french man, living and working here in barcelona, we immediately clicked, and i fell in love with his work. these pieces, slightly ethnic representations of animals and figures, come to life not just from the artistic eye of marc, but from the shapes they held before, all being recycled pieces from chairs, cabinets and even tools.  i think the bull i have in my doorway at openhouse is the most talked about piece i have. and from november we will keep changing pieces. please contact me at the shop, come to see the 2 pieces i have here, or phone me to arrange a viewing of more pieces.
