Wooden Man – Bob Orsillo


Artist Statement

The Wooden Man is a noir photography series that explores a day in the life of an wooden man. Puppet-like hands and motion suddenly take on a life of their own when placed in startling new context. Light and shade also heavily add to its implication. It’s an artistic expression of space and ambience, used to show how character can be imbued into what is essentially a man made of a tree stump.
