Dubbed “the wood whisperer” by Azure magazine, Brent Comber is a renowned Vancouver artist with a special connection to the beauty of wood.

No two of Comber’s pieces are alike – and that’s because no two pieces of wood are the same. The grain is different, the texture, and the colour. His wonderfully tactile pieces draw us in, inviting us to touch the alternately smooth and rough surfaces, follow the grain patterns in every piece, smell the workshop fragrance of fresh-cut lumber.

Comber’s art will be highlighted at Heartwood with a custom installation of the Shattered Sphere, which will be placed in open amenity space for everyone to touch and enjoy.

SHATTERED SPHERE
A sphere represents a geometrical object whose points are all equal distance from the centre. As a symbolic image, the sphere represents three-dimensional space such as the earth, the sky and the Universe. Brent Comber’s latest Sphere collection explores the relationship between our perception and our curiosity of how wood is formed. This series includes two designs, the Solid Sphere and the Shattered Sphere, and both encourage us to look at the life cycle of a tree differently.

Every Shattered Sphere explores our desire to bring order out of chaos. This series explores the fragility and complexity of artistic engineering, as each sphere becomes a puzzle that is put together by hand. In stacking each piece of split wood, Brent is able to reveal a new purpose and a new space for the wood to occupy.
